2009 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, Chardonnay, Burgundy.
The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Domaine Chanson is 100% Chardonnay. The vineyard is located in the heart of the appellation on the top part of the Corton Mountain, above the Pernand Vergelesses and Aloxe Corton villages.
The wine offers a pale golden yellow colour. On the nose, the wine gives off white fruit notes followed by a vanilla hint and a subtle mineral character. Complex and well-structured, the 2009 Corton-Charlemagne possesses a pure fruit as well as a dense and precise structure. The wine reveals a well-integrated acidity, but also a very subtle wood. The finish is generous and fresh.
