Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2000 Patrick Javillier Cuvee Speciale 75cl / 13%
A bottle of Corton-Charlemagne Cuvée Spéciale 2000 from Domaine Patrick Javillier, picked from one of Burgundy's most celebrated hillside vineyards. Four barrels of this wine were produced, with the fruit picked from Corton-Pougets and aged in 50% new oak for 12 months of aging, after which the wine was transferred to older barrels for a further 6 months of marrying.
Sometimes referred to as 'the Chablis of the Cote d'Or' for its ability to combine power and flesh with a purer, minerally edge more readily associated with wines from cooler, more northerly vineyards. Corton-Charlemagne is named after the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne, who once owned the hill of Corton on which the vineyards now rest.
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where they have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
