Domaine des Héritiers Louis Jadot, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2012, Beaune, France
Tasting Note: This lemon-colored white burgundy has a nose of citrus, white smoke, chalky limestone along with a touch of green melon.
The smokiness on the nose is less pronounced on the palate for this chardonnay that was aged in 1/3 new oak and 2/3 old oak.
Citrus flavors intensify on the tongue and characterize the final 75% of the taste. The wine is medium-plus intensity with a long finish.
