Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2015, Rollin Père & Fils


Despite its fame, the Corton-Charlemagne is the only Côte d'Or grand cru which can claim to still be on the price/value scale. At around 60 euro, this Rollin version of the Corton-Charlemagne in the 2015 edition is a must buy. The quality and ripeness of the fruit shines through immediately as pineapple and lychee aromas push through a base layer of ripe pear and white peach. Such splendour brings a smile to the lips of any taster! Lovely, glamorous and succulent yellow fruits on the palate. Balance is restored with accurate acidity and a mineral core. One would have to spot the opulence of this wine as a grand cru. Super-enjoyable. Scores 23-26/30 for a Corton-Charlemagne.
