2022 Rapet Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne

$189.99
2022 Rapet Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne
These are the last bottles we have available of this great Corton Charlemagne buy. The 2022s are shaping up to be rather excellent, and once again, Rapet has done a fantastic job making one of Burgundy's greatest white wines at a more affordable price. We are selling more and more Rapet as people catch on to this fantastic producer. Over the past five years, the wines from this address have gotten very good, with 2022 having incredible potential as one of their top efforts.
While still an under-the-radar address in Pernand Vergerlesses, Rapet has a family history dating back to 1795, and you might be surprised to know they are one of the largest single owners of Corton Charlemagne. Sourced from vines averaging 50 years old, this is a modern-classic representation of Corton-Charlemagne, using some Amphore for vinification, which Vincent Rapet says brings more freshness to the wine. There is plenty of power here but also lots of elegance and refinement, creating that dynamic many of us love from the wines of Burgundy. 2022 is on par with some of the best of the vintage, and at this lower price point, it's a brilliant buy.

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 94+ points! "Another strong performance from Rapet, the 2022 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with aromas of pear and crisp orchard fruit mingled with toasted nuts, white flowers and waxy citrus rind. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, with a glossy, concentrated profile, excellent underlying cut and a long, mineral finish, it's a very good wine that still flies somewhat under the radar."

Jasper Morris MW (Inside Burgundy) 93-96 points! "90% is from the Pernand. Side, a third old vines, a third 20 year old, a third 35 year old. And guess what, the youngest are in the worst condition. Some tressed, some worked by winch. Pale colour, a beautifully mineral nose, properly shows its terroir. The wine picks up speed further back on the palate, opening out very nicely. Very attractive."
