    Corton Charlemagne 2011
    Quintessence, V. Girardin
    Bottle (12)

    "Distinctly cooler on the nose than the 'regular' Corton-Charlemagne: lime, crushed rock and white flowers, with a hint of the chicken broth quality shown by the classic bottling. Tighter in texture and higher-pitched in the mouth, with the crushed stone minerality currently dominating the lime and floral flavors; imploded today yet utterly vibrant. The pure, saline finish builds and builds. This should be long-lived." (93-96 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Sept. 2012)

    Estimate: $950 - $1,300.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
