” A cool and admirably pure nose features notes of red pinot, dark currant, floral and an exuberant spiciness that are trimmed in a discreet application of wood. There is good vibrancy and excellent delineation to the highly seductive flavors that deliver very fine length on the silky and velvet-textured finale. This is not super complex at present but the underlying material is such that more will almost certainly develop over time and my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt in this regard” (2014 vintage) 94/2026+

” There is a fine sense of freshness to the cool and overtly spicy aromas of various floral, plum and sandalwood hints. I very much like the purity of the energetic, sleek and attractively detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess a highly refined mouth feel thank to the fine grain of the supporting tannins, all wrapped in a balanced, persistent and beautifully complex finish. This is quite good and should age effortlessly over the next 10 to 15 years.” (2013 vintage) 92/2025+

“Here there is sufficient reduction to largely mask the underlying fruit that is trimmed in moderate wood. There is more size, weight and mid-palate concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that brim with dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately tannic spine on the balanced and beautifully persistent finish that displays almost no youthful austerity.

Corton-Charlemagne                                                                                     parcel: Corton Renardes

2015 Corton-Charlemagne: Background notes of oak set off slightly less exotic if still notably ripe aromas of pear, apple, wet stone and white flowers. There is once again good richness to the very round and concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of sap that buffers the moderately firm finish that also is agreeably dry. This should drink well young, at least in the context of how Corton-Charlemagne usually ages. (90-92)/2020+

2014 Corton-Charlemagne: A discreet application of wood sets off the ripe but distinctly cool and highly restrained aromas of citrus peel, apple, white flowers and plenty of wet stone character. The rich, concentrated and muscular medium weight plus flavors display excellent verve and cut on the robust, austere and quite firmly structured finale. It seems clear that this is going to require at least 5 years or so of bottle age to further develop and more completely harmonize. Good stuff with fine mid-term development potential. 93/2022+

The Corton-Charlemagne from Poisot is a charming effort. In the bouquet fresh orchard fruits – pear and peach with a delicate expression of citrus infused mineralic terroir. On the palate good length and balance – lovely pure midpalate fruit with fine depth and focus. It’s quite forward, harmonious and charming with a quite understated delicate complexity from the grand cru terroir. A nice year for Corton Charlie – a pleasure .                                             (Drink from 2020) – Fine+ 92 – 93p –Steen Onham, WineHog.org

1er Cru Pernand-Vergelesses en Caradeaux                                               parcel: en Caradeaux

” A brooding and somber nose consists of mostly of various dark berry fruit aromas that are nuanced by hints of earth and forest floor. There is both good richness and volume to the lightly mineral-laden middle weight flavors that possess a suave mouth feel,  all wrapped in a midly rustic and chewy finish” (2014 vintage) 91/2022+

Issue 62, 2nd Qtr 2016 Allen Meadows, Burghound

” A pretty and very fresh nose is composed of violet, earth and a lovely mix of red adn dark berries that exude a whisper of the sauvage. There is fine volume to the moderately rustic middle weight flavors that are shaped by dusty and chewy tannins on the ever-so-slightly edgy finish. (2013 vintage) 89/2020+
