The 2015 Corton Maréchaudes Grand Cru has a gentle and quite sensual bouquet with lifted raspberry coulis, cranberry and hints of cola developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, crisp in the mouth with a silky smooth finish that renders this almost drinkable at this prenatal stage. I like the piquancy here and it is bestowed with fine length in the mouth.
Here too there are modest amounts of oak and menthol sitting atop the restrained but ripe aromas of both red and dark pinot fruit that are liberally laced with notes of warm earth, game and forest floor. The seductively textured and velvety big-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration on the dusty, sappy and lingering finish. This is perfectly good but it’s not in the same league as the best of these Corton big boys. (89-92)/2025+
