Domaine Leroy's sole white, the 1997 Corton-Charlemagne, reveals magnificently ripe aromas of poached pears, apples, smoke, anise, earth, and grilled oak. This sweet, rich, tangy, lively, medium to full-bodied wine offers a flavor profile composed of candied lemons, minerals, and nuts. It is extremely well-balanced, concentrated, and possesses a long, toasty finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. Bravo!
