Corton-Charlemagne can produce some of the more powerful and intense whites of Burgundy, but also some of the longest lived. Marry this with the house style of Olivier Leflaive that is generally more detailed and finessed, and it's easy to see why this is one of the flagship wines for the Domaine. A true Grand Vin.
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2011 from Olivier Leflaive might well be the single wine that shocked everyone by its class. It certainly has the most nuanced and well-defined bouquet of the flight, positively exuding minerality with touches of greengage and citrus peel coming through. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, good tension and focus with a touch of spice and sea-salt lining the composed and persistent finish. Impressive. Very impressive.

This is well-marked by new oak, with plenty of stuffing underneath. Notes of lime, white flowers, apple, sweet spice and petrol ride a wave of vibrant acidity as this stays linear and defined through the long finish. The lime and mineral accents are enhanced by spice details in the aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2028. –BS
A very restrained nose only reluctantly reveals its cache of green fruit, apple, wet stone and citrus nuances. There is excellent size, weight and intensity to the mineral-driven and markedly saline flavors that culminate in a vibrant, clean and lingering finish that is somewhat oddly a bit one-dimensional. The underlying material seems to be very solid and my range offers the benefit of the doubt that this will become notably better than it is showing today.
