Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Chardonnay

This auction is for a single bottle of 1996 Corton-Charlemagne from Joseph Drouhin.

Burghound tasting note:

A beautifully complex and fresh nose with absolutely no trace of oxidation is in keeping with the delicious, intense, detailed and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that display impressive focus and intensity on the palate staining finish. Indeed the only nit here is that the flavors are not quite as complex as the nose but overall, this is a lovely effort that is knocking on the door of its majority though it should hold at this level for another decade.

Tasted: Nov 16, 2007 Score: 91 Drink: Try from 2008+
