Joseph Drouhin Corton Charlemagne 2011

Joseph Drouhin Corton Charlemagne 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1843355*

Rating
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Aug 2013)
The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from the estate’s own vines on the east-facing slopes toward the bottom of Les Languettes. It has an elegant bouquet with touches of beeswax, honeycomb and spice that are crisp and well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a smudge of lemongrass on the entry, a crisp line of acidity with fine tension on the finish. This is a respectable Corton-Charlemagne that just needs to come out of its shell. Drink 2015-2025+

Technical notes
Site: occupies a dominant position on the hill behind the village of Aloxe-Corton. The estate of Drouhin faces due east. History & tradition: Corton-Charlemagne is the only vineyard in Burgundy bearing the name of two emperors: ”Corton” comes from the Gallo-Roman Curtis d’Othon, meaning the Domaine of Othon, a German emperor. It gave the word Courthon, which became Corton. Famous emperor Charlemagne (Carolus Magnus) was, according to legend, the owner of the vineyard. Soil: brown limestone with small stones.
