2000 Maison Bertrand Ambroise Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (1/27/2016)
When you first smell this wine you think its going to be forward and giving. Well its not. There are some creamy, inviting lactic notes and a bit of wood spice but this is essentially a very youthful white wine build like a red. It is dense and chewy. It has concentrated tangerine, cumquat and lemon fruits. It is pulpy and strewn with geological matter. There’s forcefulness, sap and plenty of grunt. You feel like it may live forever. It wont and there are probably premox’d examples out there too but this bott was excellent.
