Winemaker's Notes

The Rollin family for many years has exploited two separate parcels totaling about one-half hectare within the appellation of Corton Charlemagne. One parcel is on the Aloxe-Corton side within "Le Charlemagne" and the other piece is on the Pernand side of the hill known as "En Charlemagne". The grapes from each parcel are harvested and vinified separately and are then assembled prior to bottling (after more or less fifteen months of elevage). From our personal perspective, the Corton Charlemagne from Rollin is one of the finest white wines in our portfolio, a true Grand Cru. We purchase two barrels a year … and a small amount of magnums are drawn for us annually

Critical Acclaim

"There is also a slight reductive note present though again, it's not enough to really conceal the ripe and strikingly layered nose that features a hint of wood, green apple, dried rose petal and plenty of wet stone influence. There is outstanding richness and ample mid-palate concentration to the broad-scaled flavors that culminate in an explosively long finish that really stains the palate with dry extract. This is very tightly wound at present though I suspect that 7 to 8 years of cellar time will see this at its best."

This is one of my favorite Grand Cru sights, and this might be the best Corton Charlamagne I've ever had. Beautiful texture and brightness!
