Domaine Patrick Javillier, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2006

Imported by Allen Scott Wines Ltd., Lake Success NY.

From methuselah.

Fifteen years on.

Emerald. This splits the difference between the slightly demanding terroir effect and the richness of the vintage. The flavor associations run to juiced celery, vodka, holly berry, iodine, and sheet metal. The green fruit strikes a fine chord, and then you taste the fleur de sel and chalky limestone. The diversity and persistence of mineral elements resonate like stone church walls after the choir has gone silent. Now – 2026+.
