Region Corton-Charlemagne

Corton-Charlemagne has a striking gold robe, even in its youth, and a remarkably generous nose of cinnamon, walnuts, pepper, tropical fruit, and amber. It has a soft mouthfeel that is enlivened by bright acidity, as well as a naturally high alcohol content that makes it quite powerful, concentrated, and long.
