Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Lively, succulent and juicy, the ’12 Corton-Charlemagne shows a genial, open-knit side to this often austere white Burgundy appellation. Complementing its customary notes of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, white flowers, river rocks and spice, this wine shows fresh-cut herbs, ginger and nice salinity, all culminating in a lasting finish. Domaine Faiveley’s 1.52-acre Corton-Charlemagne vineyard, planted in 1961 and 1988, have prime south-southwest exposure and grey marl soil, traits that lend ripeness and minerality to this fine white Burgundy. After handpicking, the grapes for this Corton-Charlemagne vinify and age in fût, oak barrels, for about sixteen months before bottling. The 2012 vintage provided for a rich and decadent style of Corton Charlemagne that can be enjoyed slightly earlier but will age beautifully.
