A ripe and generous Corton-Charlemagne with a caramelized-pear aroma, but the stony character that’s typical for the site is the dominant aspect of the wine. Serious structure here! Drink or hold.—James Suckling

Domaine fruit, grown in Les Languettes, still in barrel, sadly just three of them. A little touch of coconut from the barrel and with a suggestion of intensity on the nose. Very considerable intensity of fruit on the palate, as if they had concentrated the flavour of all six barrels they normally make in just three. Very intense.—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Note: from a .33 ha parcel in Les Languettes
Tasting note: Prominent aromas of mineral reduction and floral elements are laced with hints of wood toast, citrus peel, apple and anise. The sleekly muscular and stony big-bodied flavors are also nicely refined yet powerful while possessing excellent delineation on the youthfully austere finale. This is clearly ripe yet manages to retain the style of a classic CC.—Allen Meadows, Burghound

The 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was a small yield this year, with just three barrels produced instead of the usual six. It has an understated bouquet of light dandelion and patisserie aromas. The well-balanced palate displays fine delineation and a tang of marmalade toward the finish. This is a nicely composed Corton-Charlemagne, though I wager it will be best consumed within its first decade. -- Neal Martin, Vinous Media
