    Corton Blanc is from what area other than Corton Charlemagne? I have seen it before from D. Fontaine. Almost never exported to US. I also never see Mercury Blanc which in my experience is a great deal in French white Burgundy.

      The hill of Corton is mainly grand cru, but it is only the parts known as en charlemagne and le charlemagne that can be called Corton-Charlemagne (or indeed Charlemagne). The other grand cru parts, if planted with chardonnay can be labelled Corton (blanc) but not Corton-Charlemagne.
      Hope that helps 😉
