Solid, rich wine, which is piled with tannins and beautifully crafted black fruits, acidity and firm tannins. (RV)
Classic Corton in style and weight with big, muscular and powerful flavors and a strong earth and game-infused nose. This wine is consistent with many '02 wines from this appellation as the tannins are dense yet refined and sophisticated. I particularly like the highly complex, delineated and precise finish and this has the potential to be a great wine that should drink well over 2+ decades.
I loved the 2002 Le Corton (domaine). A structured, powerful wine with loads in reserve, it reveals aromas reminiscent of spice-laced red cherries, stones, and fresh herbs. On the palate, this medium-bodied effort has outstanding depth, concentration, and length. Cherry pits and fleshy black raspberries are intermingled with rocks as well as blackberries in its complex flavor profile. (PR)
Medium red. Game and smoke aromas, with a whiff of currant leaf and a strong impression of soil tones. Big, chewy and lush, but with rather reticent flavors of licorice, minerals, menthol and earth. This is all potential today, finishing very subtle, long and strong, with terrific clarity, freshness and grip. (ST)
Intense, displaying kirsch and wild cherry aromas and flavors, accented by rosemary and earth. Tannins need time to integrate. (BS)
