This collection includes twelve bottles of Camille Giroud Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2017.

I just returned from Burgundy, where I fell in love with the exquisite 2017 vintage whites I sampled. I came home with “insider” access to my favorite Grand Cru white wine discovery that's available for less than $250. Camille Giroud Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2017 is absolutely sublime featuring “vibrant and refreshing citrus fruit notes balanced by glorious mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors that show both elegance and glorious age-worthy potential.” - Hal Oates | Porthos President and Founder

Recommended Food Pairings  
» Coquilles St.-Jacques (a.k.a. scallops in butter sauce) 
» Corn Soufflé with Dungeness Crab 
» Aux Delice or Brillat creamy French Cheese  

Background  
Corton Charlemagne is the queen of the Grand Cru sites in Burgundy. Polished, yet regal, in the hands of the best winemakers it can deliver an experience that rivals that of Montrachet for a fraction of the price. Always a serious wine, Corton Charlemagne is for serious ‘Burghounds’ to savor now (advance decanting recommended) and the patient collector will be well-rewarded for allowing it to cellar at least for a good decade, and beyond.  

History  
Founded in 1965 by the man of that name, for many years this producer was known for traditional, long-aged Burgundies. It was acquired in 2002 by Ann Colgin and husband Joe Wender. Colgin is most famous for her eponymous ‘Cult’ Cabernet in Napa Valley. A remarkable turnaround has occurred, and the wines are now highly prized at many of the finest restaurants in L.A. and New York.
