“Wafting from the glass with aromas of buttered orchard fruit, ripe lemons and blanched almonds, the 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a broad-shouldered, powerful profile, chewy structuring dry extract and racy acids, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. This is a very persuasive wine from Girardin” – boasts The Wine Advocate. And we agree, the wines from Corton have been celebrated for hundreds of years and this vineyard has ability to age if you can wait, for decades. Given the ripeness of the vintage, we would most certainly have to pop a cork on this one immediately. An amazing bottle of Chardonnay!
