Sitting on some bottles of '07 and I've been a bit worried of their condition (I should be...).

2007 Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru


Looks too dark! Color of a hearty lager. Nose of overripe stone fruit, nuttiness, brown sugar, burnt butter; simple oily hot body with flavors of cotton candy and peach. Drinkable but over the hill. Perhaps 85 points. NR (flawed)


2007 Rapet Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru


Medium dark gold, crystal clear; Nose of burnt sugar, lactic acid; med. sharp body with flavors of straw, stonefruit, lemon. Clipped finish. Far too advanced. Probably should consider this flawed as well. (89 pts.)

2007 Domaine Debray Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru


Medium gold color; muted aromas with peach schnapps and lemon; crisp lively body with lemon oil, straw. Alcohol noticeable and overall a bit brutish and monolithic. At least it wasn't overly premox! (91 pts.)

2007 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru


Now we're talking! Clear light gold color; almost overwhelming perfumed matchstick aroma along with exotic lemon oil; med. body with sharp lifting acidity and flavors of of lemon, lime zest, interesting spices. I feel like this is too young but with my recent experience, that might be a risky choice. (95 pts.)

2007 Bouchard Père et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Domaine - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru


Medium golden color; light peach, marzipan, and lemon aromas; medium acidity with a light to med. body with flavors of bruised green apple, sharp lemon, lactic acid. A good wine but I paid for a great wine. I don't know if I'd say premox condition but still not where this should be. Alas, there's no such thing as a great wine, only a great bottle of wine. (92 pts.)

Dear GC white burgundy,

We've had our ups and downs, our highs and lows, and I think its time we move on. It's not you, it's me. OK, it's you. Far too many expensive bottles of dark golden drain cleaner have broken my heart (and my wallet!). I'll still keep my eye out for your 1er Cru and village cousins, but we're done.
