95 points "Power, density, huge richness-all the attributes you would expect from a Corton-Charlemagne. But, this being 2006, the ripe tropical fruits are crispened with acidity which cuts through the impressive opulence and ripeness. Burghound -- 92pts A notably ripe but not exotic nose of green, yellow and citrus fruit complements reserved, intense, round and very primary big-bodied flavors that display obvious concentration and muscle on the dry but attractively textured and detailed finish. By the typical standards of this wine, '06 is a vintage that will drink well early as it's generous focused. I personally would give it the better part of a decade but the mid-palate fat is such that it will be approachable earlier than usual." Best 2016-2030
