2017 Domaine Rapet Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1426445 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark With the 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, Rapet has produced his finest white since 2014. The wine opens in the glass with a classy nose of ripe lemons, green apple, white flowers and crushed chalk, framed by subtle hints of oatmeal and beeswax. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with excellent concentration and broad shoulders, but also promising structural tension and reserve. The long, chalky finish is penetrating and intense. This is well worth seeking out. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here the nose is clean, elegant and pure with its combination of green apple, citrus, white flower and wet stone nuances. There is both outstanding volume and mid-palate density to the intensely mineral-driven large-scaled flavors that are at once caressing but muscular before concluding in a compact, serious and beautifully persistent finish. This clearly needs to develop more depth but with the impressive development potential and extended aging curve this appears to possess, the complexity should gradually arrive. Drink: 2027+ Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru offers attractive, mineral-rich aromas of yellow flowers, honeysuckle and orange pith, gathering intensity with aeration. The taut, linear palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and a delicate touch of spice toward the finish. It just misses the fatness, the gras-like element, that one seeks in Corton-Charlemagne, though it feels persistent. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

94pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Almost all En Charlemagne, with varying ages of vines which they start picking from youngest to oldest. Vinification is partly in two cement eggs which don’t heat up and the rest in his usual 350l. Vincent thinks the eggs reinforces the minerality. This is a very fine rendition, detailed stones without overt weight. Very classy too in the mouth, this is far from blockbuster but it is full of little stones and saline notes. Medium plus persistence. Tasted: October 2018."
