TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, which comes from de Montille’s south-facing vineyards, is relatively early-picked. It has a tightly wound nose that has difficulty following the Chevalier-Montrachet (even though that was reduced!) The palate is well balanced with a harmonious entry, slightly waxy in texture as a Corton-Charlemagne should be, although it feels quite linear and strict on the finish.
