Lot #137. Domaine Leroy Corton-Charlemagne 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 ST.
"Yellow-gold. Soil-driven aromas of menthol, hazelnut, almond, mint, honey and medicinal herbs; showing everything but primary fruit. Then energetic and exotic in the mouth, boasting explosive density and depth and a tactile impression of dry extract. As solid as a top red wine today. A wine of near-medicinal austerity, finishing with lovely menthol lift. This will need several years to integrate its acidity and underlying stony minerality." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, Mar 2011
Provenance: The Besançon Cellar
Notes: Chipped and very lightly wine stained wax capsule, torn and lightly bin soiled label, sign of slight overfill seepage. Bottle No. 00213
