The 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is rich, textured and wonderfully inviting. Dried pear, chamomile, yellow flowers, tangerine oil and light tropical accents infuse the 2018 with notable character. Readers will find a Corton-Charlemagne that offers a level of textural richness and oiliness that are not often found in Corton-Charlemagne. Bright saline notes appear with a bit of aeration, but the 2018 is mostly a wine that emphasizes showiness and allure. There is plenty of both.
