Famous Grand Cru White Burgundy. The vineyard of Corton-Charlemagne is situated in the prime area of the hillside of Corton where its southeasterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 2009 94 points saying "Powerful, concentrated and intense, this wine rolls around the mouth in its rich opulence. The ripest of sweet apricot and pear fruits join buttery toast just laced with acidity."
