Domaine Jean Chartron Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2017 (5252)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Aloxe-Corton

Bill Nanson, the Burgundy Report: The first wine tasted from barrel. A nose of attack, freshness and yellow fruit. Direct, mineral, no prisoners, but approaching the mid-palate, slowly opening, embracing, even comforting. Super Charlemagne. In the end you are old friends…

Professional Reviews

John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

I like Jean-Michel Chartron’s 2017 Corton-Charlemagne quite well this year, but it cannot quite keep pace with the stunning quality of the previous two premier crus. The bouquet is pure and has a nice touch of reserve to it in 2017,offering up scents of apple, pear, a touch ofpassion fruit, chalky minerality, fresh almond, orange zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and complex, with good focus and cut, racy acids and a long, nascently complex and promising finish. This is going to be very, very good. 2022-2055+.

3 barrels made from a sm;ll holding in En Charlemagne plus some purchased grapes. A little bit of oak showing, currently as this has not yet been racked from barrel. There is a good concentrated mineral core but for the moment the oak shows more prominently. Good length behind but not easy to assess. Tasted: October 2018.


Steen Ohman

The Corton Charlie is intense, long and quite tightly knit. The nose offer quite exotic white orchard fruits – cool yet with a nice genrosity. Lovely chalky minerality – fine balancing acidity – quite filigree and vivid. An impressive Charlie in the making.
