Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013


Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013

Legend has it that the Corton hillside was once planted exclusively with red grape variety and that Charlemagne himself had a penchant for these wines. Unfortunately, the red wine left scarlet stains in the Emperor's beard and his wife feared that this would bring shame upon the royal dignity. Charlemagne therefore decided to replant the vineyards with white grape variety in order to continue drinking his favourite wine.

The nose reveals oaky, fruity and floral notes. The palate is concentrated and well-balanced with excellent aromatic persistency.
The rich aromas make this Grand Cru enjoyable in its youth although it only develops its full character after a few years of bottle age. An exceptional wine with depth and minerality.
