*Sweet Spot* A notably ripe yet somehow cool and elegant nose offers up black berry, stone, warm earth and violet aromas that are in keeping with the equally ripe, dense and serious flavors that evidence an overt muscularity on the textured and palate staining yet refined finish. 2009 seems to have been a banner year in Corton and this terrific effort won't contradict that pattern.
(this and the rest of the Prieur grand crus were aged in 100% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Warm, complex, soil-inflected aromas and flavors of redcurrant, dried tobacco, leather and spices, with a hint of dark fruits emerging with air. Juicy, firm and intense, displaying lovely finesse and energy; much less obviously 2009 in style than most of the preceding wines. This very youthful, delineated, perfumed wine finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length. Should age very well. 92(+?) points
