Domaine des Héritiers (Maison Louis Jadot), Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 1990

Jadot Corton Charlemagne 1990

Twenty five years on.

Burnished gold with an antique patina.  If the ’85 sings than the ’90 rolls deep.  Heart-stoppingly dense with cooked sugar adornment, the flavors are authoritative, all smoke and maize, enveloping kernel and nut.  Rich but not fat, with fine acidity to carry the weight.  The finish is fulsome, honeyed.  A grandiose Charlie.  Now.
