Reviews & Scores
The 1990 Corton-Charlemagne prompts the question, why cannot everyone do that? After 27 years this is still so energetic and vital, storming from the nose with mineral-rich citrus fruit that are quite Puligny-like in style. The palate is surprisingly focused and linear for a 1990, disguising completely that warmth of that summer (much more than the 1990 Montrachet from Comtes-Lafon served prior to it). There is something regal and imposing about this Corton-Charlemagne, maybe aloof but totally captivating. How I wish all Corton-Charlemagnes aged like this. 
VM96
Leroy's 1990 Corton-Charlemagne, is an oaky, bold, dramatic wine, with huge quantities of fruit, glycerin, and what appears to be tannin. Some remarkable 1991 white burgundies were produced by Lalou Bize-Leroy. Yields averaged only 9 hectoliters per hectare in her Chardonnay vineyards and alcohol levels averaged 13.5%. These wines will be the longest-lived whites of the 1991 vintage.
