Our Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2017 is a vibrant, full-bodied white wine. The nose reveals intense aromas of peaches, pears, vanilla, and cream, lined with notes of hazelnuts, toast and wet stones. On the palate, the same flavors are expressed, concentrated and multi-layered yet elegant and well defined. The finish is long and oaky, with a lingering minerality expressive of this unique terroir.
Now to 20 years
