The "KING OF THE HILL" these days when it comes to premox-free, super clean, terroir-specific white #Burgundies. Pierre-Yves' 2005 #Corton #Charlemagne was incredibly sleek and linear which is why my initial impression was that of a more recent, much younger Chablis. Perhaps my favorite white Burg vineyard, Corton Charlemagne straddles the characteristics of traditional Côte de Beaune whites with their generous, ample body with Chablis and their steely mineral structure.
One of the most youthful and most fresh 2005s yet encountered with years of life ahead! #CortonCharlemagne #ColinMorey #Burgundy #Chardonnay #GrandCru — 6 years ago
