Vibrant, ample, and generous, our Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018 collects superlatives. Its nose reveals intense aromas of fresh mango, dried apricot, and pineapple. This aromatic explosion is highlighted by toasted and vanilla notes. The palate is remarkable in its purity. The finish resonates with the pleasant minerality typical of this unique terroir.
Now to 20 years
