Wine Spectator: 95 Points

There is a creaminess to the texture in this white whose profile borders on broad and muscular. Apple lemon and stone flavors hold center court while elements of spice and mineral lurk on the lingering finish. Best from 2024 through 2036. 175 cases imported.

Vinous: 90 Points

The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a light waxy nose that lacks a bit of energy. The palate is balanced with orange zest and mango. Not a complex Corton-Charlemagne but pretty with a lightly spiced almost Viognier-like finish. Fine though it does not match the promise that it showed from barrel. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2018 white tasting. - By Neal Martin on May 2022
