Pascal Clement Corton Charlemagne
Red Cortons are deep crimson, a velvety dark red darkening to magenta. Full-bodied, the bouquet is expressed over fruity (blueberry, gooseberry, kirsch) or flowery (violet) accents, moving toward undergrowth, animals, leather, fur, pepper and liquorice. To the palate, it is powerful and full-bodied, structured, readily expressing its chewy tannins and its body. Firm and forthright, rich, it needs time to develop (4 to 12 years).
