The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot offers up a generous nose of buttered apples, preserved citrus and a creamy framing of new oak, followed on the palate by a full-bodied, rich and ample wine with considerable textural impact and moderate depth at the core, finishing with light grip and noticeable alcoholic warmth. This should evolve into a ripe, generous Corton-Charlemagne with a few years of bottle age, but it's unlikely to be especially long lived and I wouldn't bet on its balance for the long haul.

This white combines power and intensity, elegance and seamlessness, supporting lemon cake, apple, nut oil and mineral flavors. Though enticing now, this should really sing in two to three years and offer pleasure for the next decade or more.
