2005 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru Vincent Girardin 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2005 Corton-Charlemagne from Vincent Girardin, picked from one of Burgundy's most celebrated hillside vineyards.
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.
