    Once again, the nose is firmly reduced though it seems clear that the underlying fruit is ripe. The plump, round and succulent larger-scaled flavors possess much better density and impressive power on the saline and beautifully long finish. This isn't as precise and chiseled as it usually is though there is still much to like as it should be reasonably approachable on the younger side. Drink 2027+.

    Rich and demonstrative, the 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru wafts from the glass with aromas of orchard fruits, peach, nutmeg, orange oil and fresh bread. Full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's deep and concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit, lively acids and a long, saline finish. This is an unusually broad-shouldered but beautifully balanced Corton-Charlemagne from Bouchard. Drink 2025 - 2055.

    This has quite pronounced vanilla oak, but has only just been bottled. As it aerates, notes of ripe pear, citrus and pineapple develop. Rich and creamy, this makes a bold statement, but also has lovely freshness that complements the generous body. Keeps pumping out the flavors for a long time at the finish. Drink or hold.

    Grown on marl with yellow notes, but only a narrow band above the calcaire de Corton. Pale lemon and lime colour. The nose is powerful, but backward in detail. A huge mouthful with controlled flesh alongside an intense limestone backbone, some pebbles in the background, very long finish. Impressive.
