Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2012 - Domaine d'Ardhuy


Here comes the star of our selection of white wines. If you are looking to get a piece of a Burgundy myth, this Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru is the one. These old vines (over 40 years old) give super concentrated grapes of Chardonnay, with an ideal maturity. The wine exhibits the usual minerality of Corton Charlemagne wines, with complex aromas of yellow fruit, flowers and spices, a massive structure and a super impressive finish. This 2012 vintage is already delicious, but it will last several years if you need.
