*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. (BS)
The upper-most climat facing east. This delivers bright, fragrant dark cherries on the nose, as well as chalky, stony accents and a slightly smoky edge. The palate has a very plush and succulent core and a fine, detailed and energetic mouthfeel. Great depth. Best from 2022.
Medium red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, dried flowers, underbrush, menthol and licorice. Plush, silky and deep if a touch youthfully reduced, with its red berry, spice and earth flavors enlivened by savory minerality. A seriously mouthfilling, fine-grained wine with the stuffing and structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. A year ago, this wine was tighter than the Pommard Rugiens but today it's showing its volume. Finishes with substantial ripe, dusty tannins and excellent salty persistence. (ST)
