Louis Jadot, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 1988
Gorgeous. Medium straw/yellow colour. Wonderfully rich nose of flowers, brioche and baked apples. Medium-full bodied on the palate, with mouth-filling, soft, evolved fruity flavours, but braced by lime acidity and a slatey edge that keeps it keen and fresh. A glorious, long finish with ever-changing nuances of fruit/mineral flavours. Drinking beautifully but I'd guess it still has time on its side. Terrific stuff. (03/98)
