Amazing nose. Honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. Creamy. Citrus orchard and stone fruits. Incredible. An explosion of flavour in the mouth. Rich and creamy with peachy soft pineapple and gentle acidity. Cooked apples and nectarine and very complex oak character through the finish.

Excellent Rating

The 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was a normal crop this year since the hillside was not affected by frost. It had quite a strict and laconic bouquet at first that demanded rigorous swirling, eventually revealing attractive cold wet limestone and apple blossom notes (I might have mistook it for a Bâtard-Montrachet if blind!). The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, plenty of sappiness here with a detailed, lightly spiced finish that lingers in the mouth. This is one of my favorite whites from Jadot in 2016.(NM)  (12/2017)
