Winemaker's Notes

Intense bouquet with aromas of fruit and spice. Rich and structured on the palate, this wine needs a bit of patience in order to reveal its raciness and great distinction. Excellent ageing potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Discreet if not invisible wood surrounds the complex but restrained red currant, spice, smoke, earth and sauvage permeated aromas. There is excellent power and plenty of punch to the broad-shouldered and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration before culminating in a balanced and exceptionally persistent finish. This classically styled Corton really does a slow build from the mid-palate on back, though note well that it will be pointless to open this in its youth; in fact, don't buy this unless you intend to cellar it."
94 Points

"Bright, dark red. Expressive, wild aromas of raspberry, spices, flowers, minerals, mint, leather and meat. Lovely sweetness and breadth but almost surprisingly open-knit for young grand cru. I find both overripe and minty elements here.

Range: 89-93 Points"
