Louis Jadot Corton Charlemagne Domaine des Héritiers 2015

Save $40.00 (17%)

SKU 14956


Corton Charlemagne is powerful, rich, and mineral with an intense flavour of fruits and flowers and spicy aromas of pepper and cinnamon. It goes very well with haute cuisine, fish and shellfish, white meat and poultry with cream sauces. Ageing this wine is very important: 10 to 20 years, depending of the vintage and conditions of conservation (humidity, temperature).

BurghoundCorton-Charlemagne did particularly well in 2015 and the Jadot example is just one more confirmation of that success with its ripe but fresh and airy nose of green apple, citrus peel, floral and wet stone-scented nose. While the big-bodied flavors are not quite as imposingly-scaled as those of the Montrachet, this is by no means undersized and particularly so from a power and drive standpoint as the clean and attractively dry finish is almost painfully intense. Like the Monty, this is going to need at least a few years of bottle age and reward 10 to 15. In a word, excellent.
