Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Corton-Charlemagne-Grand-Cru-Magnum-2016

Clos de la Chapelle, Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru Magnum, 2016

“This is another outstanding wine in the making, offering up a deep and very pure bouquet of red and black cherries, a complex base of stony minerality, coffee, venison, raw cocoa, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with great backend mineral drive, ripe, suave tannins and superb length and grip on the focused and utterly classic finish. 2028-2075+.”
- John Gilman (95 points)

“In contrast to the wood regimen of all of the prior wines, this is the only one where I would not describe it as subtle, indeed it fights somewhat with the otherwise well-layered, ripe and fresh aromas of red cherry, earth and underbrush. There is excellent size, weight and richness to the broad-shouldered flavors that, like the Taillepieds, are lush and opulent yet the supporting tannic spine shaping the beautifully long finish again makes it clear that this will need a long snooze in a cool cellar. Note that there is such good underlying material that I am not concerned about the oak ultimately successfully integrating.”
