The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, which comes from the Pernand side of the famous hill, has a touch of toffee on the nose: quite voluptuous and generous at this stage. The palate is harmonious and soft, with a fine line of acidity and a gras finish. I suspect this will turn out to be a forward Corton-Charlemagne, generous from birth and wide in girth.

Gently oaky, with notes of vanilla and nutmeg shading the white peach, apple and pear fruit. Open and almost accessible now, but the vivid acidity on the finish indicates that this needs more time.
