Domaine de Montille Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2011
23 May 2020
Served double blind. I didn’t quite like the bouquet as it started off very artificial with some kind of fake plastic and chemical nose, at later stage, the artificial smell went off and replaced with some bruised apple. Content was too lean to my liking, however, it grew up at later stage to be more rich and mellow. The first impression wasn’t to my liking already, so the journey wasn’t a fruitful one. One has to realize that Corton Charlemagne requires very long aging to show it’s full potential, thus it’s quite unfair to have a 60ml tasting portion to judge a Corton Charlemagne. One has to drink at least half a bottle and watch the evolution of the wine to give proper judgement.
