An attractive story is told about this appellation: Charlemagne was very fond of the wine from Le Corton which, at the time, was red. Towards the end of the Emperor's life, the vineyards facing south were planted with chardonnay, to produce a white wine to avoid staining his white beard.

We had the chance to taste this great Corton-Charlemagne in the 1978 vintage.

It is always with a great emotion that we open bottles of a certain age and even more when they are older than ourselves.

We were very impressed by the clear and perfect color of this 43-year-old wine, it must be said that it has always been kept in the cellar since the time, which shows that the storage conditions are really very important.

We have seen much more recent white wines in worse condition, be careful with the light (in addition to the rest)!

2nd nose: Eucalyptus, persimmon, papaya, calisson, marzipan, orange blossom

Taste: Very dry, mineral, tight. Lots of freshness, saffron, paprika

The retro nasal note is slightly pastry, buttery and vanilla.

A wine of a very high level that we are likely to remember for a long time!
