The 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, which is owned by Drouhin and is located in “Longettes,” had quite a virile, fiery bouquet that calmed down with aeration. Hints of tinned peach and dried apricot emerge with time. The palate is quite rich on the entry with lovely honeyed touches both in terms of taste and texture, a spicy vein emerging with time and showing commendable depth toward the finish.

A small parcel that yields just six barrels. Impressive citrus aromas with a flinty edge, as well as pithy lemons and grapefruit. It delivers a mouthwatering impression of power and clarity. The palate has a very succulent, powerful and refined feel with a stunning,saline mineral cut. Supreme concentration and power. This is great. Organically farmed grapes.
