Maison Champy Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

AOC Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru, Burgundy

Corton-Charlemagne is partly produced in Aloxe-Corton, and partly in Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix, villages in the north of the Côte de Beaune.  Its altitude ranges from 220 to 360m, with 0.5 ha facing east-south-east to south-south-west in the lieu-dit "En Charlemagne".  The soil is a light clay limestone marl.

Tasting Notes

A light golden yellow color, with golden highlights.  Great intensity of aromas of ripe white peach and vanilla.  Oriental herbs and spices (cinnamon and coriander), with floral notes following initial notes of citrus.  In the mouth, it is round and rich, with a fresh mineral finish.  Nice balance and concentration, with a long and persistent finish.

Matches perfectly with delicate dishes such as a scallop carpaccio with fanilla, tempura lobster with orange butter, a monkfish tagine, roast turbot or Saint-Pierre, and cheeses like Brillat-Savarin, Chaource or Vacherin.

Aged in 30% are new barrels.

    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."
