Jean Pierre Maldant Corton Charlemagne 2020
About Domaine Jean-Pierre Maldant
Situated in Ladoix-Serrigny, at the foot of the hill of Corton,
in the north of the Côte de Beaune, the Maldant’s have been
making wine in Burgundy for five generations, since 1895. In
1998, Jean-Pierre Maldant decided to give up his job working for
the Hospices de Beaune and devote himself entirely to his own
Domaine. His son, Pierre-François Maldant (pictured left), has
now succeeded him at the head of the family Domaine, where
he has been making the wines since 2010. ...
Remarkable acidity, perfectly controlled by a round opulence in the mouth, a virulent richness, the Chardonnay of the Corton-Charlemagne appellation surprises here by its concentration, its distinction and its balance. Rarely does the grace of the grape variety establish such a close link with the character of its terroir.
