Corton Bressandes Grand Cru

2011

This cuvée comes from 4 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 35 years old and face east.

"Good bright red. Ripe raspberry and graphite aromas are perked up by a whiff of blood orange. Supple, sappy and intense, with an exotic suggestion of spun sugar leavened by a slightly herbal quality that carries through to the saline, firm finish. Very fresh wine, particularly in light of its high 3.8 pH, and in need of a good four or five years of cellaring."

"Here too there is a deft touch of wood that is sufficiently slight so as to allow the slightly more elegant and perfumed red berry fruit, earth and stone aromas to shine. The cool, pure and more obviously mineral-inflected flavors also possess a bit more size and weight and while the lingering and well balanced finish is moderately austere, this is actually relatively civilized for a young Bressandes."
