Another constant in the Verget line-up, their 2006 Corton-Charlemagne from east-facing, 60 year-old vines is a real powerhouse. With breadth and considerable alcoholic weight 14% - but less, Guffens points out, than the 2005 this at the same time cuts a real swath across the palate with citrus and chalk. Fresh lime, honeydew melon, brown spices, and pungent herbs are seamlessly stiched into a mineral framework and low-toned meaty richness emerges like a powerful undercurrent in the finish. This should merit at least 7-9 years’ cellaring.

A strikingly elegant and high-toned nose of green apple, white flower and hints of lemon rind merge into intensely stony and pure full-bodied flavors that deliver excellent punch and length on the explosive finish. This is still a bit awkward but this indisputably possesses the best material in the range.
