Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Corton-Charlemagne-Double-Magnum-2015

Clos de la Chapelle, Corton Charlemagne Double Magnum, 2015

“Silky smooth and finely woven, with lemon, apple, spice and stone flavors, this is both complex and sophisticated. The vibrant structure drives the flavors, building to a long, mouthwatering aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2032. 107 cases made.”
- Wine Spectator (94 points)

“Having vines on the Pernand side of the hill of Corton must have been an advantage in the hot summer of 2015, and the Clos de la Chapelle version in this vintage has turned out beautifully as a result. This is 13.5 percent alcohol in 2015 (all natural) and the wine is impeccably balanced and drinking with loads of personality out of the blocks. The superb bouquet wafts from the glass in a classic blend of pear, apple, a touch of iodine, stony soil tones, spring flowers, hazelnuts and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely broad-shouldered in style, with excellent concentration at the core, fine soil signature, bright acids and impressive length and grip on the nascently complex and perfectly balanced finish. This is very delicious in its wide open youth, but really could do with at least a couple of years in the cellar to allow its secondary layers of complexity to start to emerge.”
