Ravaut Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016
Ravaut’s 2016 Corton-Charlemagne is among the best we’ve seen from them. Like many whites of the vintage, it combines magnificent roundness and power with beautiful tension and energy. This is in its infancy — wines from Corton-Charlemagne can drink well for decades — but it’s already showing remarkable complexity.
With a decanter and an hour today, it shows baked apples, juniper, and honey. The mouth is dense, spiced, rich, and impossibly long. As it ages, look for truffle, mushroom, and woodsy notes. We like to have other white Burgundy around for everyday drinking. But when it’s time to make your guest feel like an emperor, pull out a bottle of this.
