2016 Joseph Drouhin Corton-Charlemagne Magnum

 

Cellar Tracker Community 92 points (as of 4/30/19)

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 93 points (rated 6/18/18)- There is still quite a bit of post-bottling SO2 that is strong enough to overshadow the majority of the fruit though aggressive swirling eventually liberates notes of Granny Smith apples, white flowers and soft wood toast. I like the excellent intensity of the muscular yet sleek flavors that brim with minerality and plenty of sappy dry extract, all wrapped in an ever-so-mildly warm finale. This will need at least a few years to develop better overall depth but the underlying material is here such that it should occur over time. (Drink starting 2026)
