Jacques Prieur Corton Charlemagne 2016/2018



Burghound : 92-94 points

A commendably subtle application of wood easily allows the super-fresh aromas of Granny Smith apples, lemongrass and white floral scents to be appreciated. There is arguably even better richness to the almost painfully intense and vibrant big-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the overtly stony, muscular, chiseled and linear finish. This excellent effort is presently very compact and is going to require at least 5-ish years to flesh out and unwind but it should be well-worth the wait.
