A winner in the premox lottery. Has the integration of Cortony green apple and vanilla nougot that you only get with age. Not the most muscular or taut vintage, but good richness and concentration with great minerality that really shines through when paired with food. Lovely.
from magnum. rose-gold color, toast, beeswax, tropical citrus zest, pie dough; med+ weight; orange spectrum citrus-dominated, plush & balanced, buttered toast, subtle mineral streak, softer acids than expected: while delicious, not as invigorating as anticipated.

(Boillot Henri Corton-Charlemagne) Not light colour - at least not when using the previous two as reference. Very ripe, honey on the nose. In the mouth it’s fat and concentrated - no obvious oxidation aromas or flavours - but not the zing, not the painful intensity and not the haunting finish of those first bottles - comment from winemaker friend #2: “you called me round just to taste this?” - ouch.
(Boillot Henri Corton-Charlemagne) Deeply coloured for such a young wine, a shimmering gold. The nose has a creamy fruit-salad sense to it, almost brooding. The palate is a Charlemagne tour-de-force with it's upfront burst of flavour and stunning concentration - it was a challenge to drink the second glass - but I persevered!. Keeping the wine in your mouth brings thoughts of a stream gushing over rock, but if you need a respite and try swallowing you're in for a shock, it's like opening the curtains and letting in the sun as the finish unfolds with deep, creamy waves. Best young Charlie I ever tried - as if I haven't bought enough white wine already...
