This is Charles Magnien’s second vintage of making a Corton Grand Cru from the Côte de Beaune, and the result is magnificent. The vineyard is in the commune of Ladoix-Serrigny, facing due east, downhill from Corton Le Rognet. 5.5 barrels were made, of which four were new. Colour is mid-deep purple, sustained all the way to the rim. Aromas are fragrant and rich. Great care went into gentle maceration of the grapes, resulting in the palate being densely textured, with charming fruit and fine tannins. Finish is rich, flavourful and full of promise (for drinking 2024-2035+).
