AOP Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

Domaine Muzard Lucien et Fils 2017

€2400 Flacon de 10cl

We are proud to introduce an exceptional wine to the D-Vine selection. Considered as one of the finest white wines in the world, Corton-Charlemagne is also one of the rare wines to bear the names of two emperors, including Charlemagne or Charles the Great, who is said to have owned the vineyard in the 7th century. With aromas of honeysuckle and slightly oaky notes, this Corton-Charlemagne boasts a truly elegant nose. On the palate, beautiful freshness and deliciously rich flavours work brilliantly together. There’s just no resisting this superb soft white wine.

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.
