Wine Critic Reviews for 2016 Antonin Guyon Corton Charlemagne

(Corton-Charlemagne- Domaine Antonin Guyon) Happily, the 2016 Corton-Charlemagne from Domaine Antonin Guyon was spot on and absolutely singing at the time of my visit. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a refined blend of apple, pear, fresh almond, a complex base of chalky soil tones, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent focus and grip, crisp acids and superb balance and cut on the long, nascently complex and properly reserved finish. A classic in the making. (Drink between 2021-2050)

This is a powerful young wine, its flavors sealed off behind the flintlock of reduction. Over the course of several days, its clarity and purity come into focus, with hints of meadow flowers, fresh spring grasses and a meatiness to the tannic structure of its pale lees. Treat it like the grand cru that it is and cellar it for ten years.

Like the Charmes the nose is firmly reduced. The full-bodied and powerful big-bodied flavors brim with both dry extract and plenty of minerality that carries over to the intensely saline, linear and beautifully long finale. This understated effort is presently tightly wound but my sense is that it will be approachable after 5 to 7 years of bottle age.

It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers.

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.
