Aloxe Corton, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Henri Boillot

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2010

Now we’re talking. First opened the ‘12 for my quarantine birthday wine dinner with Maine lobster and Maryland crab. Sadly it was in premox hell. The ‘10 on the other hand was open for business. In its prime drinking window. Minerals, oyster shells, a touch of wood, incredibly balanced and in its prime. Had the ‘14 Mouchere in the dugout but thankfully didn’t need to pull it. Is there a better duet than east coast shellfish and Burgundy???? A sequestered birthday dinner I will never forget.... — 8 days ago

Love those whites but premox still scares the hell out of me

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2002

 A very restrained nose when opened but no flaws detected . It began to open after 45 minutes in the decanter. The nose started to show some apples and honey. Perked up in the mouth thanks to some good acidity. Butterscotch, pear and spicy oak dominated on the palate . Medium finish. Based on this bottle probably a few years left but YMMV given how many off bottles are out there. — 10 days ago

Awesome stuff

Bonneau du Martray

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

this used to be the great value white grand cru but has suffered from significant pricing increase coupled with a horrible track record of premox. This, however, is an excellent bottle, a little herbal from the vintage but clean and with a good backbone of acidity, citrus, and nice complexity. Not the level of 85/86, but happily a solid white Burg. — 14 days ago

A great vintage for this wine. Nose is very grapey. Cherry skins. Mineral. Needs air to expand. Sweet fruit and lovey sap and structure. Powerful and deep like good Auxey can be. Nice earthy mineral finish with a sappy sour cherry hit. Really terrific fruit and freshness. Has that snap. — 16 days ago
