From a terrific vintage for Corton-Charlemagne, and evident here from Vougeraie. Rich, complex and luckily showing no premox. Popcorn, exotic citrus fruits, hazelnut and hints of flint and stony minerals. Finishes with very good length and intensity...From Blue Hill at Stone Barns Cellar. — 11 days ago
Vintage 2015 - opened by accident and was worried as this is definitely a baby - after 2.5 hours decant - this became on of my top three burgs ever - I know you will find this hard to believe and crazy to say but even at over 200 a bottle the wine drinks better than burgs I have had that are over 1,000 - this wine will age 20-30 years but I bet in 5 years it will incredible and in its prime drinking window
The grand cru was even more complex and the finish was extraordinarily long refined and supple - this is burg for the burg lover - a beautiful nose – the fruit is a beautiful, slightly textured with super clarity - In the mouth it’s the same - brilliant – clarity of width structure, tension, and the longest length ever – I love for this wine today but more tomorrow but not as much as I will in 5 years - a wine lover grand cru burg - Bravo Anne bravo!! — 5 days ago
Light gold, looks young for its age. Nice heavy weight. Fruit forward nose. Notes of citrus, dried tangerine, apricot, dirty stone and clay, some spice. Great mouth feel with fruit and structure in balance. Long finish. Had this multiple times and this was one of the better ones. — 9 days ago

Had this at a tasting and bought several bottles, aging well. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new). Ruby with aromas of red and black stewed fruits and complex spice. On the palate, flavors of layered fruit, ripe black cherry and raspberry with cedar notes and wet herbs. Full soft tannins, balanced acidity, long ending with earthy mineral character, has room to age. Outstanding! — 24 days ago
This is pretty wow. A blast of lemon oil, sweet edges, intense minerality and light floral notes on the nose. There’s oak and some matchstick but it’s all in place. The palate is sweet and very punchy. This is a very 09 CC but has the acid to back it up. Really good stuff. — 12 days ago
This is past it’s peak, but absolutely drinkable. And not opening it within hours of possessing the bottle is a cardinal sin in my book. One of those odd finds I could not pass up! Tasted over a five hour period of time.
Uncorked and served chilled: vibrant copper color. Toasted almonds, hard aged cheese, and white truffle aromas, opulent! The pallet is full of intense nutty flavors and mead wine, the finish is equally intense.
After a couple of hours the wine beings to brighten up on the pallet; the aromas are relentless, however. Acidity is present on the mid pallet and lingering finish; red apple and orange peel fruit flavors abound.
In the latter part of the five hour mark, the flavors on the finish turn spicy: white pepperish.
A most enjoyable wine experience. Cheers. — a month ago
Love this wine. This is a benchmark vintage here. Unreal nose. So layered. Cherry, black cherry, black berry, sous bois, earth, Moss, leaves, dried leaves, so so detailed and classic. Wow this is great. Palate is deep, rich and ripe with great energy and stuffed with fruit. Concentrated and super super sappy. Big structure and depth. Clean as a whistle with terrific cleansing acids. Love the structure here, the sweetness and the intense minerality. Long finish. Will age 15 years. Killer. — 24 days ago
