Product Details

This Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne is a wonderful expression of this great terroir. David Croix proves with this that he is also to absolute master of white Burgundy. This is truly a sublime wine, intense and layered with a magnificent mineral finish.

I have been following this estate for years and am very impressed by the particular finesse and purity David Croix manages to bring to his wines. After all, he is also the man who managed to bring the wines of Camille Giroud back to top level, and at Roulot, too, his input was invaluable. From now on, all his attention will be exclusively on his own estate. Is he the man to give the superb yet somewhat misunderstood terroirs of Beaune back the renommée they deserve? By the looks of it, he is doing plenty of that! Beaune was hardly touched by the spring frost and here, the 2021s are absolutely stunning!

Jasper Morris MW: “Not protected by candles, but pruned late and came through with 30 hl/ha. Racked very end August. Still quite reduced, though the bouquet may also be partly due to the stony mineral character of the vineyard. Builds very well on the palate though. The fruit has ripened very nicely, has retained its acidity while displaying a pleasing yellow plum fruit. Considerable persistence. Very good, or will be once the bouquet gets into place.
