Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2001 Bouchard Pere & Fils 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 2001 Corton-Charlemagne from Bouchard Père & Fils, 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.
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where it has been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
