2002 Domaine / Maison Vincent Girardin Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune, Wine Review
Great showing for this bottle. This is a big, round white Burgundy that at age 21, is just about at peak. Deep golden in color with some orange hues, clear and bright. The color likely influenced by both the time spent in oak and the age of the wine, but certainly proper. The nose is nice with red apples, with air, some lemon cream, just a very slight brown sugar note, and great minerality. Almost viscous, but crisp at the same time gives this a nice texture.
