Lot #138. Domaine Leroy Corton-Charlemagne 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 AM.
"An exotic, ripe and expressive nose of spiced apple, orange, tangerine and a compote of peach aromas gives way to phenomenally rich, powerful and almost painfully intense large-scaled flavors that possess seemingly endless reserves of palate staining dry extract. The minerality is overtly pungent and the mouth feel is very much akin to rolling rocks around in your mouth while waiting for the explosively long finish . . . . this bold and highly dramatic effort is impressive as hell." Burghound.com, Jun 01, 2012
Provenance: The Besançon Cellar
Notes: 2.5cm, lightly chipped and lightly wine stained capsule, lightly torn and very lightly bin soiled vintage neck tag, torn and stained label, sign of slight overfill seepage. Back label torn - Bottle No. not visible
