Rapet's 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has shut down since bottling, opening in the glass to reveal a reserved bouquet of pear, preserved citrus and wheat toast. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and impressively tensile for the vintage, with good concentration and structure and a long, chalky finish. This is one 2015 white Burgundy which holds promise for the future.
This easily possesses the most complex nose in the range with its ripe, yet cool array of green apple, citrus, petrol, soft wood and spice hints. There is impressive size, weight and concentration to the muscular big-bodied flavours that coat the mouth on the citrus and mineral-inflected finish. I would make the same observation here that while this could easily be enjoyed young, I would be inclined to give it at least a few years of bottle age first to develop more depth.»
