Pale-gold when young and adorned with green reflections, the Corton-Charlemagne acquires amber and more yellow nuances with age. With infinite delicacy, its bouquet expresses, on buttery overtones, baked potatoes, citrus fruits, pineapple, linden tree, fern, juniper, cinnamon and flint. Honeyed tones occur frequently. Leather and truffle provide an escort for older vintages (up to 25 to 30 years). The glass and the palate are filled with a powerful breath. With virulent richness, the Chardonnay surprises here by its concentration, its distinction and its balance. Only rarely does the grace of the varietals establish such a close connection with the character of the land.
HARMONIOUS FOOD/WINE COMBINATIONS
A Perfect marriage with the better shellfish (lobster, crawfish, crab, etc.), whose delicately strong flesh leads to a spectacular harmony. Complements foie grasdivinely. Poultry and veal in a white sauce will also do it proud, as will blue cheeses and hard cheeses.
