Professional Reviews

John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

The Chartrons lost forty percent of their production in Corton-Charlemagne in 2016. The wine has turned out beautifully, offering up a complex nose of pear, apple, hazelnuts, a touch of iodine, a fine base of chalky soil tones, a touch of honeycomb and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a rock solid core, impressive cut and grip and a long, nascently complex and focused finish. This is nicely round on the attack and snappy on the backend, which augurs very well for its future development. 2023-2060


Wine Advocate - Neal Martin

The 2016 Corton Charlemagne came from a one-year-old barrel (there will also be a new and two-year-old barrel). It has a straightforward, brioche-tinged bouquet that opens nicely in the glass, with hints of peaches and cream, later gooseberry tart. The palate is well balanced, honeyed in texture with notes of dried apricot, frangipane and a hint of honey. It does not quite deliver the length, but this is undoubtedly a well-crafted Corton-Charlemagne from Jean-Michel that will give immense pleasure over the next 10 to 15 years.


Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"

The first wine tasted from barrel.

Bright, mineral, saline and citrus. A little gas, but beautiful silky texture and a hint of fat. Wide, wide, wide. Slowly fading in the finish. A classic, mineral Charlemagne, and excellent.
