Terregelesses Corton Charlemagne 2004

Terregelesses Corton Charlemagne 2004 #1

Ten years on tasting.

From magnum.

Lemon-yellow.   Not the fleshiest of Charlies, this is zippy yet substantive: peach stone and citrus.  Cool, lissome and high-toned: pixelated intimations of coastal scrub, lemon balm, heliotrope.  Brisk and mineralic at the end.  Not the greatest dimension but a wine without ego.  Soulful and true.  Hardscrabble Corton Charlemagne with an entrepreneurial spirit; feels like it hails from the nose-bleed seats high on Corton hill.  Drink soon.
