*Sweet Spot* Here the wood treatment is a bit more discreet though it’s still not subtle on the exceptionally cool and fresh but ripe nose that offers up plenty of sauvage and earth hints that suffuse the black cherry and lilac scents. The dense, bold and overtly muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors possess an abundance of sappy extract that coats the palate and buffers the extremely firm tannic spine on the immensely persistent finish that is less austere than it usually is. This is breathtakingly good and despite my extended drinking window, it should be approachable after only 7 to 8 years.
Le Corton's aromas are marked by oak, with plenty of sweet fruit underneath, black cherry, blackberry, spice and earth, on a tight, dense frame. (Blogs-Bruce Sanderson)
Bright red-ruby. Medicinal scents of kirsch and licorice show a positive burnt note. Distinctly tighter and more clenched than the Pommard Rugiens, without the early pliancy of that wine but with terrific energy and clarity to its black fruit and licorice flavors. This very young, juicy, firmly tannic wine needs time to harmonize but has all the elements to make a superb bottle. (ST)
