The 1999 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a spectacular white Burgundy that numbers among the greatest recent vintages of this legendary wine, wafting from the glass with notes of preserved citrus, toasted sesame, buttered popcorn and gingerbread, showing more and more complexity as it unwinds in the glass. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with wonderful tension at the core, its glossy texture underpinned by a bright line of acidity that carries through the penetrating, searingly intense and unremitting finish. This Corton-Charlemagne’s sheer length marks it out as one of the high points of this tasting. Jean-François Coche observes that the 1999 vintage was tight-knit and rather unyielding in its youth but that he always had confidence in its extraordinary potential.
