Jacques Prieur, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018
Maximum 12 bottles per person.
“The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was poured after the Chevalier-Montrachet and Montrachet and perhaps does not quite deliver the same details and intellect on the nose. Still, there are attractive peach skin and lemon curd notes, plus a touch of hazelnut and almond surfacing with time. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, delivering the weight and rondeur you expect from a Corton-Charlemagne and an almost honeyed texture. Touches of lemongrass appear toward the finish. This is a thoroughly enjoyable Corton-Charlemagne in the making and it will probably need less aging than the aforementioned grand crus.” – Neal Martin
