Henri de Villamont 2009 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $125

This is grandiose, with ripe apricot and peach flavors—even a note of mango—that are allied to the wood notes. As a contrast, there is fine acidity and elegance, with a lemon zest edge that gives structure to this full, superripe, powerful effort.

Maison Jessiaume 2009 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $180

This is a balanced, ripe and wood-aged wine that is intense and seductively attractive. It has a yellow fruit flavor, with acidity and a superb edge of wood. This should age well.

Pierre André 2008 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

From Pierre André’s Château Corton-André, they can look up at the hill of Corton and the Corton-Charlemagne vineyard. That gives them a neighborly interest. This is reflected in this rich, powerful, muscular wine, full of yellow fruit, ripe wood and tense acidity. It should age for 4–5 years.

Roux Père et Fils 2008 Corton-Charlemagne Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $164

All structure and textured fruit, this is a wine for the long term. All the elements are there, although restrained by the vintage. The yellow fruits are more peach than apricot, while wood is still domiNAt. But it does have the power and should be aged for 4–5 years.

Maison Champy 2008 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

A rich and generous wine, its fruit flavors coming from all directions and centering on a powerful, concentrated core. The wine has opulence, a well-judged amount of wood, and aging potential for six years or more.

Maison Jessiaume 2008 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  1. $80

An appropriately rich wine, full, toasty and dense. The fruit is beautifully balanced with ripe acidity, just a touch of spice, citrus and an opulent, full-bodied character. It will certainly age, but is already very drinkable.

Albert Bichot 2007 Domaine du Pavillon Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

Plenty of ripe fruit and big texture on this intense wine, which hasn’t shown half its potential yet. The pear and white peach fruits are edged with minerality and a closed-in texture. The wood gives an unfortunate burnt edge that needs to soften out. Age for at least five years.

Domaine Laleure-Piot 2007 Chardonnay (Corton-Charlemagne)

  1. $178

You can feel the wood, rather than tasting it, such is the delicious fruit character: layers of ripe white fruits, shot through with citrus, white figs and crisp nectarine. The wine is edging towards youthful austerity but the fruit gives it great life and freshness. Imported by Robert Kacher Imports.
