Pinot Noir * 75cl * 13% ABV * Burgundy, France

"An out-and-out classic – and allegedly King Charlemagne’s favourite wine because it didn’t stain his beard red. Problematic aspects of beard grooming aside, Corton-Charlemagne is one of Burgundy’s most famous white wines for a reason, being both explosively flavoured yet with a background acidity and oyster-shell style mineral character that makes this a simply wonderful and aristocratic white wine. No wonder this is still one of the benchmark wine styles for winemakers from New World countries. Vincent Rapet makes a distinctly characteristic style of Corton-Charlemagne that captures the rich citrus and pear fruit that the vineyard is noted for, yet retaining the acidity and poise that the south-western slopes of the vineyard can produce. Whilst this is perfectly possible to drink and enjoy now, this is a white that will last for a good few years yet, all the while continuing to improve." Rob MacCulloch MW
