Across the board the whites from Lise et Luc Pavelot are insanely sumptuous and balanced, but it’s clearly the Corton Charlemagne that’s the fullest, most complex, and most delicious. It’s richly textured, and makes me think of honeysuckle and stone. The acidity is quietly present, and the finish has exceptional length (still enjoying it 24 hours later).  These are wines to open and enjoy now, or to cellar for a decade or more.

2013 – Racy and Intense – a beautiful vintage for whites in the Cote de Beaune  - this will age for decades.
2012 – Richness and Depth – a low-yield powerful vintage that’s open and ready to drink, but will keep for another 10+ years.
2011 – Freshness and Elegance – also one to open up now, and will improve over the next 10 years.
