Wine Critic Reviews:

(Corton-Charlemagne- Domaine Antonin Guyon) Like the 2012 Charmes, the Corton-Charlemagne had also been bottled in the middle of March, but it too had not yet shut down and was showing brilliantly. The deep and classic nose offers up a stellar constellation of pear, apple, lemon, chalky, stony minerality, a hint of almond, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nascently complex, with great purity and mid-palate depth, racy acids, stellar cut and balance and a very, very long, focused and youthful finish. A great Corton Charlie! (Drink between 2019-2040)

John Gilman | 96 JG
Powerful, yet round and mouthfilling, with apple, pear, honey and stone flavors permeating the dense texture. Pulls together on the lingering finish, presenting a mix of spice and mineral. Delivers terrific balance and a good aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2030. 75 cases imported.

Sokolin 2012 Antonin Guyon Corton Charlemagne Tasting Notes:

For how young it is, the 2012 Antonin Guyon Corton Charlemagne drinks pretty well and showcases almost limitless potential. It's hard to give it classic status without waiting for a decade or longer, but if any wine would be blessed in such a way, few come to mind before this one. On the nose, you should expect to find notes of pear, lemon, and apple, with hints of chalky minerals and vanilla. A deep, full-bodied wine forms seemingly before your very eyes, and you're treated to a loving caress on the palate.

The depth and purity of flavor on display are almost mind-boggling, and with an estimated drinking period stretching from now to 2040, you can only expect even more nuance and character to develop over time. If you're patient but still want to add something to your collection, this vintage is a great option, in no small part due to how affordable it is.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer A.Guyon: With a history almost as rich as the flavor of their fine wine, Domaine Antonin Guyon is a veritable titan in the French viticulture. Year after year, they keep demonstrating their mastery over wine in a way very few can match, producing wines from over 15 appellations. Nothing beats a direct visit to this region, where you can breathe in the atmosphere, the noble countryside winds as they playfully brush past you. The grapes are hand-picked with the utmost care and brought for triage within thirty minutes. The result? Wines that can change your outlook on life. As the texture unfolds in your mouth, and an earthy carpet rolls out, a parade of cherry, spice, and tobacco graces your palate with a delicate yet vigorous dance.
