AOP Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

Domaine Muzard Lucien et Fils 2015

€2000 Bottle of 10cl

Considered one of the finest dry white wines in the world, Corton-Charlemagne is one of the only wines to be named after two emperors, one of which being Charlemagne, or Charles the Great, who is said to have owned the vineyard in the 7th century. With brioche and caramelized apple aromas, this wine shows a rich and elegant nose that is very representative of the Chardonnays of Burgundy. On the palate, this wine is nice and full with a lively side that prevents it from being overly heavy. A smooth and supple wine with a real wow factor.

Winemaker

Claude et Hervé Muzard

The Muzard Vineyard belongs to a very old Santenay family where they have been winegrowers from father to son for nine generations (Jacques Muzard in 1645). Mr and Mrs Lucien Muzard structured the establishment in the 60s by renting vines at first and then bought them little by little. Claude and Hervé Muzard now operate the 16 acres of the family vineyard, spread out over different climates in Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet and Pommard. The overall production of the vineyard is 5% white wines.
