Winemaker's Notes:

"Another constant in the Verget line-up, their 2006 Corton-Charlemagne from east-facing, 60 year-old vines is a real powerhouse. With breadth and considerable alcoholic weight 14% - but less, Guffens points out, than the 2005 this at the same time cuts a real swath across the palate with citrus and chalk. Fresh lime, honeydew melon, brown spices, and pungent herbs are seamlessly stiched into a mineral framework and low-toned meaty richness emerges like a powerful undercurrent in the finish. This should merit at least 7-9 years' cellaring."

My Notes:

About Verget:

By creating Verget in 1990, Jean-Marie Guffens shown the same requirement as for his personal production. The philosophy of the house can be summed up in one simple sentence: "the best wine is made using the best grapes." This adage quasi Basic is the keystone of Verget. Thus, whether in the M√Ęconnais, Chablis or Cote d'Or, what are the best vineyards and the best terroirs who are wanted for producing quality wines.
