The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine des Héritiers Jadot) has turned out beautifully in bottle, offering up an elegantly patinated bouquet of citrus oil, peach and apricot mingled with fresh bread, toasted almonds, mint, and vanilla pod. This is full-bodied, rich, and textural, with a fleshy core of fruit, chalky structure, and bright acids. Its powerful, broad-shouldered profile reflects its origins in Les Pougets in the commune of Aloxe-Corton.
The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is excellent, displaying a lovely bouquet of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed chalk, and a discrete touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, tensile, and tight knit, with chewy structuring dry extract, tangy acids and a long, grippy finish. This is built for the cellar and will be well worth seeking out.
Aromas of yellow orchard fruit, waxy lemon rind, iodine and smoky new oak introduce the 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru full-bodied, satiny, and nicely layered wine that's deep, concentrated, and persistent. It's a youthfully reserved but decidedly impressive Corton-Charlemagne that will reward bottle age.
The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru from Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot offers up a generous nose of buttered apples, preserved citrus and a creamy framing of new oak, followed on the palate by a full-bodied, rich, and ample wine with considerable textural impact and moderate depth at the core, finishing with light grip and noticeable alcoholic warmth.
Jadot's 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has a light brioche-scented nose that lacks some complexity at first, but aeration sees more minerality developing. The palate improves in the glass eventually; it demonstrates fine weight in the mouth. It boasts a slightly honeyed texture with a touch of nutmeg on the finish. Very fine.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.

Corton-Charlemagne is a prestigious wine appellation located in the Côte de Beaune region of Burgundy, France. The appellation is known for producing some of the finest white wines in the world, made from the Chardonnay grape variety.

The history of Corton-Charlemagne dates back to the 8th century, when the Emperor Charlemagne was said to have owned vineyards in the area. The vineyards were later acquired by the monks of the Abbey of Cluny, who continued to cultivate the land and produce wine. In the 19th century, the appellation was officially recognized and its reputation as a producer of high-quality wines began to grow.

The style of production in Corton-Charlemagne is traditional and focused on producing wines that reflect the unique terroir of the region. The vineyards are located on the slopes of the Corton hill, which is composed of limestone and marl soils. The vines are planted at a high density and are trained using the Guyot system, which allows for maximum exposure to the sun and optimal ripening of the grapes.

The Chardonnay grape variety is the only grape permitted in the production of Corton-Charlemagne wines. The grapes are hand-harvested and carefully sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit is used. The wines are typically aged in oak barrels for 12-18 months, which adds complexity and depth to the final product.

Corton-Charlemagne wines are known for their rich, full-bodied character and complex aromas and flavors. The wines are often described as having notes of citrus, honey, and toasted nuts, with a long, lingering finish. They are best enjoyed with rich, flavorful dishes such as roasted poultry, seafood, or creamy pasta dishes.

In conclusion, Corton-Charlemagne is a world-renowned wine appellation that produces some of the finest white wines in the world. Its rich history, traditional style of production, and focus on quality have made it a favorite among wine enthusiasts and collectors alike. If you are looking for a truly exceptional white wine, look no further than Corton-Charlemagne.
