Ratings and Tasting Notes:

JS=96 This is a formidable white that grows on the palate with dried apples, pears, lemons and hints of lime. Full-bodied, tight and focused. This is a tight and powerful wine. Phenolic and bright. This is an ager as always. Get it on release. WS=93 Ripe and creamy, offering lemon cake, floral and peach flavors, shaded by oak spice. Subtle, yet builds to a long, complex finish. The tangy aftertaste echoes lemon, mineral and spice notes. Best from 2020 through 2029. AM=92 Moderate reduction masks the fruit today though it doesn't seem as though it will last for more than a few years. There is excellent punch to the beautifully well-detailed big-bodied flavors that ooze an evident salinity on the muscular and powerful finish that evidences enough dryness to be of some concern. My intuition is that the dryness is sulfur-based and thus will progressively dissipate with age. WA=92 The 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is showing well from bottle, offering up aromas of lime zest, crisp green orchard fruit, fresh peach and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and notably saline, with a bright line of acidity to underpin its ripe fruit and an attractively penetrating finish. Though I would like to see more of the flesh and texture that I found from barrel, this has turned out well.
