No wonder Christine is smiling! Her fantastic wines have been a stunning success in Australia....
So many of our customers have purchased the tremendous Dubreuil-Fontaine Corton Reds from us. Even we are surprised.
But did you know that the domaine also makes a Corton-Charlemagne white from vineyards in the prime En Charlemagne climat?
The wine is Burghound's equal second highest rated Corton-Charlemagne from the outstanding 2010 vintage. The wine scores 94 Points. Only the Henri Boillot Corton-Charlemagne, which costs twice as much, is rated higher at 95 Points.
Perhaps we weren't seeing the best Corton-Charlemagnes in Australia over the last decade? From my tastings over the last couple of years I can assure you that the quality of this vineyard is skyrocketing. For the moment the wines are great value, but it won't stay that way forever.
Dubreuil-Fontaine Corton-Charlemagne 2010
Normal Price $150.00
Pre Arrival Price $128.00
Burghound: A touch of reduction does not materially detract from the elegant, pure and gorgeously complex aromas of green apple, rose petal, green fruit and an almost pungent minerality that also makes quite the impression on the exceptionally rich, intense and overtly powerful flavors. This is a big wine with excellent mid-palate concentration that does not compromise the sense of focus and tension on the explosively long finish. This is a knockout with plenty of aging potential. A Sweet Spot Wine. 94 Points
