Winemaker Notes

The dress is yellow gold with green hues. The nose it is elegant

and complex, will seduce you with its citrus notes, floral and a melted woody. The mouth is full, rich

and mineral. This wine is concentrated, its finesse and its balance are in harmony with a final while

length.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A ripe, tropical style, displaying mango, pineapple, apple, lemon and baking spice flavors. Broad and intense, with a lingering finish of vanilla and toasted spices. Shows terrific length and expression. Best from 2021 through 2030.
TA 94
Tim Atkin

Alex Gambal’s Corton-Charlemagne, sourced from the En Charlemagne climat in PernandVergelesses, is always a reference point for the Grand Cru. Pale in colour, taut and refined, with power and concentration in reserve, stylish oak and mouth-watering acidity, it needs further time in bottle. 2021-28

BH 93
Burghound.com
Strong reduction. Like the Bâtard the broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent power and evident muscle and minerality on the mouth coating finish that delivers slightly better depth on the equally persistent finish. This is clearly built-to-age and will need at least 4 to 6 years of it first.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

THE MOVE: In 1991-1992, I began to explore the possibility of living abroad for a year or two while our children were young. We had become interested in wine and it had become our major avocation.

In May 1993, my family and I moved to Burgundy, France to take a year off to work with and help manage a small wine export company based in Beaune, France. Our goal was simply to take a year's sabbatical from Washington but we hoped that if we and the children were content we might stay longer. We moved to a small village of 150 people just outside Beaune, in the center of Burgundy, put the children in French schools, and four years later we looked back on a wonderful experience that changed our lives.

FIRST STEPS IN BURGUNDY: When we arrived in 1993 the wine business was in the dumps because of the world recession and a glut of fine wine. As we worked our way through the recession I was able to taste a variety of old, young and great wines with some of the greatest winemakers in the world. In addition, because we lived, worked and had our children in French schools, we were not perceived as tourists and were welcomed into the hidden Burgundy as parents and friends. And thus had a unique and wonderful experience.
