A generous application of wood sets off the pungent menthol, cassis, game and freshly crushed herb aromas. There is outstanding complexity and plenty of size, weight and power to the broad-shouldered flavors that display plenty of palate and tannin-buffering dry extract on the superbly persistent finish.
The 2012 Corton Greves wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth and pure power. Rich and seamless to the core, the 2012 boasts tremendous intensity. Dark red fruit, smoke, iron and blood orange meld into higher-tones of floral notes on the finish that add an attractive upper register. The low yields of the year have given the Greves softer contours than is typically the case. Next to the Pougers, the Greves is silky, feminine and gracious. (AG)
The 2012 Corton-Greves Grand Cru has a floral, feminine bouquet with pretty iodine-tinged black and red berry fruit that are graceful and defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy entry, well judged acidity and builds towards a convincing, ripe blackcurrant and boysenberry finish that demonstrates fine tension. Excellent. (NM)
