2007 Domaine Dublere Corton-Charlemagne (750ml)

SKU: 905901-0319-119
"95 out of 100 - Like his Chaumees, there are four barrels of Pethel's 2007 Corton-Charlemagne, which represent the original acreage of his still tiny domaine, a parcel in the En Charlemagne near the edge of the village of Pernand. Asked why there was not more in this of all years, Pethel said with a laugh "the vines and the vintner collaborate to keep the yields on this constant." Like so many of the best 2007s from Corton-Charlemagne, this is unusually forward and strikingly floral in fragrance for its appellation. Scents of iris, apple blossom, heliotrope, and narcissus usher in a creamy palate that gains contrast from a subtle chew of pit fruit skin while preserving a wafting floral dimension that is practically ethereal. This shows a lightness of touch, buoyancy, and transparency to floral and mineral shadings exceptional even by the exalted standards of this cru. I expect this to be worth following for more than a decade, although ? in the absence of track record ? I don't wish to go further out on a limb." - David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate
