Corton Red and White Wines

The hilly countryside of the Corton appellation can inspire awe and adoration on first sight. “What a magical land,” you might exclaim, exploring the lush green slopes and valleys of this region. From a viticultural perspective, Corton has a lot to offer to a wine hunter such as yourself, as it boasts a variety of terroir compositions, which gives each wine a unique identity and feel, making them a joy to collect and sample. As Côte de Beaune’s largest Grand Cru property appellation for red wine, Corton’s wine production has a 95% representation of strong, noble Pinot Noir.

The texture and flavor of Corton’s reds is something to behold, as the terroir sings to your palate using notes of fresh forest berries, aromatic violets, leather, and a bassy earthen undertone. Different sub-regions will add their own flair, of course, and you can expect wines from two neighbors to differ somewhat strongly. Exploring this region’s produce is an exciting endeavor, as they demonstrate the full potential of uniquely French viticulture. You’ll never get tired, trust us.

Naturally, you may want to store these marvelous wines in your cellar or save them for special occasions and big get-togethers. Luckily, they age exceptionally well and develop character as they sit in storage, only to immediately steal the show once they’re uncorked. Expect your guests to start asking a lot more wine-related questions after they experience some of Corton’s finest bottles. An essential part of any red wine lover’s collection, for sure.

2001 coche dury corton charlemagne Burgundy White

I was blown away by the power, verve and soil-driven complexity of Coche-Dury’s 2001 Corton-Charlemagne. Full yellow in color, it’s approaching maturity but shows every sign of a continuing graceful evolution in bottle. Its vibrant apple, citrus peel and brown spice aromas and flavors have been joined by deeper notes of brioche, white truffle and porcini. This wonderfully tactile, plush wine boasts compelling sweetness leavened by lively acidity, and the musky, minerally, slowly building finish begs for a side of crustaceans.Vinous Media | 97 VMThe 2001 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is a rather exotic rendition of this great wine, revealing an expressive bouquet of peach, white currants, apricot preserve, oatmeal and a light framing of toasty new oak, bearing the signatures of the botrytis that marked the vintage. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, bright and ample, as structurally open-knit as the 2000 vintage but more powerful, textural and large-scaled. Like the 2000, it’s also drinking at its peak. The 2001 is a comparatively gourmand rendition of Coche’s Corton-Charlemagne that would pair well with traditional cuisine bourgeois.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 95 RP(Domaine Jean-François Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru White) This has always exhibited a deep yellow color. In contrast to a lovely bottle that I enjoyed several years ago, the one in the tasting was clearly advanced with distinct notes of butterscotch. There was good minerality and verve to the broad-shouldered flavors and the advanced character remained only on the nose. As such, this was at least drinkable but the nose was definitely bothersome. Not Rated. My review from May, 2007 was: Like some (but not all) ’01s, there was a pronounced deep yellow color but absolutely no trace of oxidation to the nicely complex and slightly oaky nose that leads to rich, full and beautifully defined flavors that are drinking well now though should continue to develop positively, all wrapped in a long and stylish finish. Compared to the heights to which this wine routinely ascends, the ’01 is a very good but not truly great Corton-Charlemagne. Approachable now but it should hold at this level for several more years so there is no rush.Burghound | 92 BH

2019 Joseph Drouhin Corton Charlemagne

A ripe and generous Corton-Charlemagne with a caramelized-pear aroma, but the stony character that’s typical for the site is the dominant aspect of the wine. Serious structure here! Drink or hold.James Suckling | 95 JSFrom holdings located in the south-facing climat Les Languettes, Drouhin produced three barrels of the 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine), a medium to full-bodied, layered and nicely concentrated wine that’s bright and structured, evocative of white flowers, pomelo, orange oil and buttery pastry.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93-95 RPThe 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was a small yield this year, with just three barrels produced instead of the usual six. It has an understated bouquet of light dandelion and patisserie aromas. The well-balanced palate displays fine delineation and a tang of marmalade toward the finish. This is a nicely composed Corton-Charlemagne, though I wager it will be best consumed within its first decade. Vinous Media | 92-94 VMProminent aromas of mineral reduction and floral elements are laced with hints of wood toast, citrus peel, apple and anise. The sleekly muscular and stony big-bodied flavors are also nicely refined yet powerful while possessing excellent delineation on the youthfully austere finale. This is clearly ripe yet manages to retain the style of a classic CC.Burghound | 92-94 BHFrom a 0.33ha, domaine-owned parcel in Aloxe with an eastern exposition and densely planted 40-year-old vines on thin soils over the limestone bedrock. The fruit is pressed as whole bunches and fermented on native yeasts in cask (one-quarter new) to give a lovely definition of fruit that stretches from green apple to apricot, with hints of smoke, spice, and mineral. On the palate, the texture is broad yet well balanced by firm acidity on the lingering finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039.Decanter | 93 DEC
