Burghound
A very pungent nose reflects notes of wood toast and reduction. By contrast there is very good freshness and vivacity to the almost painfully intense and imposingly-scaled flavors that possess the best complexity in the entire range, all wrapped in a markedly stony, balanced and remarkably persistent finish. Impressive.

Wine Advocate
While this bottling is usually a blend of nearly equal parts Pernand- and Aloxe-side fruit, the 2016 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru hails almost entirely from the Aloxe side due to the year's devastating frosts. It remains quite classic in style, offering up notes of preserved citrus, peach and toasted nuts, followed by a full-bodied, ample palate with good concentration and a deep core of ripe fruit, balanced by juicy acids.
