Louis Jadot Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2012
The 2012 Louis Jadot Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru is a classic, powerful white Burgundy that boasts a rich and complex profile. Aromas of ripe orchard fruits, citrus, and toasted oak intermingle with a pronounced minerality. On the palate, the wine delivers a full-bodied, rich texture with well-integrated oak and a bright acidity that lends structure and balance. This wine has the potential to evolve and improve with further cellaring.
Vineyard notes- This vineyard is one of the oldest owned by Louis Jadot since the XIXth century. It is located in the very heart of the appellation (next to the Corton Pougets) which then expanded after 1966. Originally, it was the only place to be allowed to bear the Corton-Charlemagne apellation. This vineyard is ideally South oriented.
