Wine Spectator 90 points - Apple and pear flavors are accented by floral and spice notes in this elegant white. Could use a little more concentration, but this remains balanced and long. Drink now through 2018. 10 cases imported.

Wine maker notes
Our Corton Charlemagne –Grand Cru possesses rich aromas of minerals and toast. It is a lovely, fresh wine with a long, flavorful finish.
The domaine of Bertrand Ambroise was established in the late 18th century in the village of Premeaux-Prissey, just south of Nuits-Saint Georges. Today the estate has expanded to 42 acres which are worked diligently by Bertrand and his family.
Bertrand produces some of the finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy. He often works with 10%-30% lower yields than are allowed. His genuine passion only to produce wines from absolutely ripe grapes demands a severe green harvest and an additional inspection or sorting of the fruit prior to fermentation. All of this detail work has created a worldwide demand for his wines.
The style of Bertrand’s wines can be characterized as ripe, deeply extracted, full bodied, structured Pinot Noirs with clean fruit flavors being the focus.
