Corton Charlemagne Lucien Le Moine 2010 (750ML) FR Flag In Stock - Limited Qty
Corton Charlemagne Lucien Le Moine 2010 (750ML)
93-95 WA 93-96 IWC
"An utterly gorgeous wine, the 2010 Corton-Charlemagne has plenty of the drive and focus typical of the appellation, but also the richness shared by the 2010 whites here. White floral notes, pears and wet stones come to life in the glass as the wine flows through to a finish marked by intense, flinty tension and pure, vibrant acidity. This is a vivid, totally living wine in the glass...93-95" WA 8/12 "(from a colder site on the Pernand side of the hill; this fruit is ripe at 13% potential alcohol, while the Corton Blanc generally needs to reach 14%, notes Saouma): Pale green-yellow. Pure, high-pitched, estery aromas of lime leaf, lemon and mint oil, plus a whiff of orange skin; downright steely today. Extremely tight but impressively deep, with outstanding calcaire energy and cut currently hiding the wine's body. Like a wine from the shadows: there's little sign of sunshine here but this is an extraordinary example of the green side of Corton-Charlemagne...93-96" IWC 09/12
