The Wine Advocate
"Bright light yellow. Highly complex and expressive aromas of citrus peel, menthol, crushed stone and tarragon accented by ginger and nutmeg. Powerful, tactile and ripe, conveying an impression of tightly coiled energy to its lightly saline apple and dusty stone flavors. Superb energy here. This very masculine Corton-Charlemagne finishes with firm tannins. Boillot's top grand crus should turn out to be among the stars of the 2011 vintage.
International Wine Cellar
"An utterly mesmerizing wine, the 2011 Corton-Charlemagne conquers all of the senses with its grace and harmony. Lemon oil, white flowers, pears and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that are woven together in the glass. The 2011 is perfumed, sublime and drop-dead gorgeous from the very first taste. With time, though, the wine blossoms beautifully as it fills out its broad-shouldered frame with tons of style."

"As with several wines in the range there is an intense note of mineral reduction along with green apple, pear and spiced herbal tea scents. There is extraordinary size, weight and intensity to the astonishingly concentrated and overtly muscular flavors that coat the palate with dry extract before culminating in a stunningly persistent finish. This is one big and powerful wine yet once again there is absolutely no trace of heaviness. It's relatively rare to have a Corton-Charlemagne that can rival a first-rate Montrachet but here is one such example."
