From a year that was austere for several decades but which has emerged as one of the most underrated choices for top-flight mature white Burgundy today the 1993 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is showing very well indeed wafting from the glass with notes of tangerine oil crisp yellow orchard fruit freshly baked bread iodine and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied textural and incisive with a racy spine of acidity that's balanced by concentrated fruit it concludes with a long intensely sapid finish.
The 1993 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a very pretty fully mature white Burgundy. Candied apricot orange peel hazelnut and honeyed notes are all signatures of a wine that is peaking. The 1993 has retained terrific freshness especially considering the modest quality of the year and ripening that was less than ideal because of rain during harvest. Its soft curves are especially appealing. (Drink between 2019-2020)
