Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 95? points

The 2005 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru was difficult to evaluate and appears to be entering a transitional state between youth and maturity. On the nose, appealing aromas of preserved citrus, chamomile and toasted sesame mingle with notes of brioche, nutmeg and struck match. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and concentrated, with chewy extract and considerable depth, but it is seemingly missing some of the energy and tension that I have previously found in this domaine's 2005s. While aging contemporary white Burgundy is admittedly the preserve of optimists, I'd be inclined to forget this for a few years and hope that its glories reemerge, because when this Corton-Charlemagne is showing all its cards, it's close to perfection.
