Jean Chartron : Corton-Charlemagne Grand cru 2012SKU :E400/12
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from their 0.08-hectare parcel in Le Charlemagne, berthed slightly toward the Pernand side. The nose seemed very tight when I tasted it from barrel despite rigorous coaxing. The palate is already showing good weight and harmony. The oak is nicely integrated at the beginning but will need to be subsumed toward the finish. It is just a little conservative at the moment, but it is finely crafted. It just needs to muster a little more personality after bottling.
