Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2008, Patrick Javillier
Tasted at the Rex Whistler restaurant at the Tate Museum in London, we were delighted to see one of our favourite white Burgundy producers on the list. Hailing from the finely-balanced 2008 vintage, this Corton-Charlemagne sparkled in the glass. A rewarding aromatic array of green melon, spearmint, pineapple and orange. Rich, ripe apple, melon and cooked lemon fruit flavours on the palate with a luxury texture. Very enjoyable. Scores 25/30 for a Corton-Charlemagne. Unfortunately the food at the restaurant was sub-standard.
