"The Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru appellation is shared by the two villages Aloxe Corton and Pernand Vergelesses in the Northern part of the Côte de Beaune.This vineyard is one of the oldest owned by Louis Jadot since the XIX century. This wine is recognized as one of the best white wines produced in the world.

"Corton Charlemagne is powerful, rich, and minerally with an intense flavour of fruits and flowers and spicy aromas of pepper and cinnamon.

"It goes very well with haute cuisine, fish and shellfish, white meat and poultry with cream sauces. Ageing this wine is very important: 10 to 20 years, depending of the vintage and conditions of conservation (humidity, temperature)." -winemaker
"The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne is striking. An expressive, open bouquet leads to expressive fruit in this large-scaled, impeccable Corton-Charlemagne. Hints of crushed rocks and slate appear on the mid-palate, propelling the wine towards a rich, explosive finish. The Corton-Charlemagne impresses for its dazzling purity and exceptional harmony. The oak is beautifully integrated. Anticipated maturity: 2016+.- Antonio Galloni

"Good pale color. Subdued but pure high-pitched aromas of lemon, wild herbs, nutmeg, lavender, violet and white pepper, with a strong steely quality contributing to the impression of lift. The palate offers extraordinary definition and verve for the vintage, showing superb acid cut to the flavors of lemon, crushed rock and menthol. The tactile aftertaste saturates the palate with citrus peel and wet stone. This should be long-lived." -Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
