    Winemaker's Notes:

    Corton Charlemagne is a rich wine that expresses itself in time with mineral aromas. The wine displays mineral notes, flint, vegetal notes, lime, and pineapple.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pure, stony aromas of citrus fruits and hazelnut. Dense and powerful, with a tight core of thoroughly ripe fruit. Quite suave for Corton-Charlemagne but not particularly steely and not at all hard. Impressively thick but lively. Builds slowly and impressively on the powerful, very ripe back end. The only one of these 2002s to be aging in all new barrels - "because of its powerful minerality," noted Girardin, who kept more of the lees and was still stirring them every ten days.
    Range: 92-95

    International Wine Cellar

    Intense and minerally, rich but not fat, and racy, evoking lemon, apple and stone notes accented by spicy oak. Still very tightly wound and balanced, this will need time to unwind, or decant if you must drink it now. Best from 2006 through 2015. 400 cases imported. –BS

    Wine Spectator

    A profound, light to medium-bodied wine, the 2002 Corton-Charlemagne bursts from the glass with minerals, flowers, fresh herbs, and hints of mint. It is a pure, fleshy offering of outstanding depth, concentration, and power. Loads of sappy minerals are intermingled with spices and apples in its refined, noble character. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016. Range 93-94.
