Description

Beautiful white Burgundy, incredibly ripe yet very pure and showing lovely mineral character. Some toasted oak, but mostly ripe pear, tropical and lime notes. Full-bodied, it sings on the palate to a long, long juicy and sweet finish. *Top 100 Wines of 2003* 95 points, (PM) Wine Spectator

The finest wine I've ever tasted from this famed domaine, it reveals a rich nose of ripe pears, buttered hazelnuts, and minerals. Medium-bodied, lush, intense, and satin-textured, it has exceptional balance, refinement, and a stupendously long finish. While it is not the most powerful Corton-Charlemagne, it has superb focus, detail, and seamlessness. Toast, spices, pears, and ripe apples can be found throughout its complex character. If this wine continues to improve in the bottle as it did in the final months of elevage, it will be completely mind-boggling. 94 points, (PR) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
