About

95

Very perfumed and spicy, this red evokes incense, sandalwood, rose and wild berry aromas and flavors. The compact frame and dense structure reveal grip on the finish for now, but the aftertaste extends with berry, green olive and spice notes. Best from 2023 through 2042. — BS

Product Description:

This cuvée comes from four parcels situated mid-slope and spread in homogenous fashion over the whole appellation. The soils are deep and made up in equal parts of limestone and clay, giving the wine lovely balance and great length on the palate. It is a terroir that is very representative of the appellation Corton. The vines average thirty-five years old and face east. Smells like a forest after the rain and wild strawberries. It's the most structured of the three, yet still very fruit forward. Bright and juicy black cherry and brambly blackberries. Most density and body. Long finish. Excellent.
