Wine Spectator 97 points - The 2012 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was inexplicably showing a little cloudiness in the glass. Still, the nose is beautifully defined, airy and pure with hints of limestone, creme fraiche and freshly sliced apple. The palate is very well-balanced ? understated at first and then building in intensity in the mouth and yet, it does not quite deliver the complexity that I was anticipating after the ethereal nose ? at least not yet! Give this several years in bottle to let it show what it can do.
(Barrel Tasting: 94-97) From barrel. Very perfumed, with lime blossom, ripe quince verging on pineapple, yet very classic, almost austere, tight and reserved, with the vibrant acidity focusing it all.
