Domaine Rollin Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2014

1 in stock

Impressive weight and richness here. Plenty of grapefruit, hazelnuts, grilled lemons and grilled white peaches on the nose, all leading to a neatly coiled and concentrated palate.

Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate 92/100

Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting, Rollin's 2014 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru has an odd ash-like aroma on the nose, but then it pulls itself together and reveals attractive cold stone/oyster shell notes. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, fine weight in the mouth with a poised, saline finish and a touch of grilled walnut on the aftertaste. This is worth checking out, and it should give wine lovers a dozen years of drinking pleasure.

This fourth generation, 11-hectare Domaine, spread over Echevronne, Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-Lès-Beaune and Aloxe-Corton, has been run by Remi Rollin since 1989. More recently he has been joined by his son Simon, in 2003, and Simon’s wife Caroline in 2009. Domain Rollin has been certified by Terravitis since 2015 as following sustainable practices.
