Importer Note:


Leroux’s Corton Charlie comes from a postage stamp 0.12-hectares plot in En Charlemagne on the Pernand side of the hill, where the vines were planted in the late ’70s. Two barrels out of five were new. The 2015 is simply outstanding as the notes below make clear.


“Sexy musky scents of acacia blossom, hazelnut and crushed-stone minerality; very complex and subtle. Deep, rich and dry, showing surprising acidity to its tactile mineral and nutmeg flavors. Finishes powerful, even a bit aggressive, in a distinctly masculine style. The pH is here is a fairly low 3.18 and this wine is still holding 3.8 grams of residual sugar, which I never would have guessed owing to its buffering minerality.” 91-93 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com


“This too is ripe but very fresh with its combination of green apple, white flower, mineral reduction and softly spiced pear aromas. As one would reasonably expect there is more size, weight, concentration and power to the big-bodied flavors that also coat the palate on the slightly warm bitter lemon-inflected finish. This isn't as structured as it usually is and while it won't necessarily drink well on release, it should do so earlier than would be typical.” 90-93 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 67
