2018 Olivier Leflaive Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1469366 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Olivier Leflaive may be focused on Puligny-Montrachet, but he makes impressive white wines all over Burgundy, typified by the quality of this Corton-Charlemagne. Combining fruit from three parcels, one each in Aloxe-Corton, Pernand and Ladoix, it's suitably plush and glossy with toasty 25% new wood and racy balancing acidity. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

K&L Notes

93-97 points, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "All bought in as grapes, 9 barrels from three suppliers, one each from the three villages that make up Corton-Charlemagne. All now assembled. This is very weighty. Pale lemon colour. The bouquet is only prepared to release light floral notes at the moment but one can sense the stones beneath. Really impressive density and here you can feel some later picking with some peaches. Love this."
