Corton Bressandes Grand Cru
This cuvée comes from four parcels which total 1.12 hectare, situated mid-slope and spread in homogenous fashion over the whole appellation, giving a nice typicity of Bressandes. 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 40 years-old and face east. In 2018, the wine was made with 100% whole clusters. When tasted out of barrel a year ago, it was rather wound up, with ripe fruit and a super mineral backbone. Year after year, the Bressandes has nice density and body, with black cherry and blackberry notes, a touch of licorice and a supportive, generous structure, with a finish that hangs on the palate.
