"Good full red. Complex aromas of dark fruits, coffee, earth, spices and musky soil tones, with nuances of licorice and ashes. Silky and lush in the mouth, but with lovely sappy energy to the ripe dark fruit and spice flavors. Thanks to its sound natural acidity (it's cooler at the top of the Corton hillside), this cuvee began very reductive, noted Prost. Very long on the aftertaste." (IWC)

"Reduction blocks the nose but there is excellent verve to the intense, pure, robust and beautifully well-detailed flavors that are underpinned by moderately rustic tannins, all wrapped in a reserved, structured, powerful and impressively persistent finish. This is a big wine and should be capable of a long life." (BH)

Winery 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.
