Aloxe Corton, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Rapet Père et Fils

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2015

Aromatics have a lot of lemon, some white fruit but also still a clear oaky feel to it. The wine is powerful, full bodied, good acidity, nice richness and the balance is good but there is a slight alcohol dominance on the finish. Nice bottle but not great. And not the most expensive Grand Cru but I will take many Premiers crus before that, shows there are no short cuts in Burgundy.

Nez assez aromatique de fruits blancs, du citron et encore pas mal boisé. C’est puissant en bouche, beaucoup de tout, fruit, acidité, richesse mais l’équilibre est précaire avec une finale un peu alcooleuse et chaude. Bien mais pas un niveau de GC.

@Hanibal pas mauvais, finale chaude qui gachait un peu l’ensemble, mais effectivement c’est souvent bon, j’ai préféré le 2014 pas mal, j’en ai deux autres que je vais attendre!

Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

Fabooooosh! Stunning nose of spice, lifted minerals, saline, hazelnuts, baked apple pie, caramel and insane crystalline aromatic purity. Loads of wet stones. Palate is complex, concentrated and superbly mineral. This has ridiculous flavor authority and a peep intense structure that glides along the palate with its beautiful meandering elegance that meanders even more on the long finish. Incredible inner mouth florals, apples and spice with no hard edges. Amazing density and freshness and again, no hard edges. Big dry extract which makes this almost solid in your mouth, then it freshens up like nothing else. So pure, so clean and of course young. A beauty that is young but oh so promising. Incredible for its sheer cleanliness, weightlessness and sheer beauty.

After 8 hours of air this is insane. Cookie dough inner mouth aromas, insane density allied with top finesse. From 9.5 to 9.7.

Today was a reason to celebrate, my good friend was promoted to MD at the Big 4. Well deserved, Joe! This bottle is amazing - loads of minerality with lemon zest, lemon curd and a hint of butterscotch (although, the butterscotch may be the influence of the subsequent rating/bottle; Meursault-Perrier’s 1997) — 10 days ago

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2017

I was loth to open this so early, but so worth it. Candied ginger, vanilla, lemon oil, sweet tangerine, floral perfume, so aromatically complex. On the palate, fantastic acidity, more lemon oil, tangerine oil, pickled ginger, cardamom, off the charts density, and a fantastic finish, showing some white pepper and then building juiciness. — 14 days ago
