WA 91-93 "The 2005 Corton Les Chaumes (from 80- to 90-year-old vines just below the original Charlemagne vineyard) offers aromas of lightly baked cherry, raspberry, rose petal, and chalk dust. Exhibiting a relative delicacy, inner-mouth florality and overt minerality on the palate that bespeak its origins in soils also appropriate to white wine, this fascinating, beautifully-polished, finely-tannic, long-line wine also displays subtle suggestions of meat stock and noble fungus. Given its relatively slight frame and intense youthful perfume, one is tempted to recommend savoring it soon, but no doubt it will reward a decade or more of cellaring while continuing on its ravishing, refined path.
