"Here the nose is noticeably riper than the '07 version with a hint of exoticism to the citrus, pear and white peach suffused nose. The rich and extremely fresh middle weight plus flavors possess an impressive amount of dry extract as well as ample mineral influence on the austere and ultra pure finish that seems to go on and on. While its '07 counterpart is perhaps a bit more classical in style with more underlying tension, the '08 has a bit more material and like the '07, is impeccably well balanced. While it will live for many years, it will probably come to its peak 8 to 10 years from now." 92 Steve Tanzer: "Very pale yellow-green color. Nose dominated by lime, crushed stone and steely minerality. Densely packed and almost painfully dry, with taut, penetrating citrus and mineral flavors showing more energy than flesh today. This ungiving grand cru has plenty of depth and flavor intensity but is an infant today. The stony, austere finish is like touching a live wire. This seems every bit as steely as the estate's 2007 at the same stage but denser; in fact, this may be even more closed."  92-95 points, Burghound

"The 2008 Corton-Charlemagne comes across as super-classic in its chiseled fruit. Today the 2008 is holding back much of its potential, but there is plenty of energy and vitality in its focused, wiry frame. Lemon peel, lime and flowers are some of the notes that linger on the finish. Ideally the 2008 needs another year or two in bottle (and perhaps more) to show the full breadth of its personality." 94 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 "Offering a nice mix of citrus and mineral, with a hint of oak, this is subtle and nuanced, with white peach, lemon and floral flavors. A luminous white."  92 points, Wine Spectator
