Maison Champy Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

AOC Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru, Burgundy

Tasting Notes

Light and golden straw-colored with immediately noticeable aromas of ripe, white peach and vanilla coupled with herbal notes alongside cinnamon and coriander and citrus. Round and rich, with a fresh mineral finish, nice balance, and a concentrated finish.

Aged in 30% are new barrels.

Corton-Charlemagne is partly produced in the villages of Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses, and Ladoix, all located in the north of the Côte de Beaune. The altitude ranges from 720 to 1,100 feet with the vineyard plot facing East-Southeast. The soil is a light clay and limestone marl.

    Maison Champy Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru
    Wine Spectator, July 2018

    "Lean and racy, bordering on tart, boasting lime blossom, citronella, apple, pear and lemon verbena aromas and flavors. Could use a bit more flesh on its bones, yet finishes long. Best from 2021 through 2032. 50 cases made."
