There was one wine that had radically changed my perception of the heavenly juice, putting me in awe of the complexity,evolution and elegance that wine could possibly offer. It is none other than the 1990 Faiveley Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru that I'd had back in 2005. It was pure Magical...
When SH opened this bottle of Genot Boulanger Corton Charlemagne 2004, I was excited to test drive a young Corton Charlemagne from a different producer to see how Corton Charlemagne evolve to maturity.
Nose: Flinty, tight with some vanilin. Citrus and creamy. Not much to offer yet at this stage, which is typical of Corton Charlemagne that takes at least 8-10 years to open up.
Palate: Solid mouthfeel. Harmony of acid, structure and weight. Clean but you could taste big potential in the tight but layered mouthfeel. Finish was medium.
Verdict: still too young at this stage, give it a good 10 years and i believe you would be handsomely rewarded
