Tasting Notes

1999
Corton-Charlemagne
Grand Cru White 750 ml
Score: 97
 
Tasting note: (with thanks to Herwig Janssen and Hal Borthwick). While there is noticeable reduction, it does not materially impede the amazing nose that explodes from the glass with spice, intense minerality and green apple scents. The '99 is a huge wine with muscular flavors of remarkable power that are underpinned by marvelous cut and an overtly austere finish of such length that I almost couldn't believe it. The balance here is perfect and this is without question one of the finest examples of Corton-Charlemagne that I have ever tasted. While this is very close to arriving at its apogee I would hold for another two years or so and drink over the next 20 as this is going to be a very long-term wine. Multiple and consistent notes.
