A more reserved yet even more complex aromatic profile offers a broad spectrum of fruit types along with game, warm earth, underbrush, smoke and wet stone, all of which add depth to the intensely soil-driven big-bodied, powerful and serious flavors blessed with excellent amounts of dry extract that completely buffer the very firm tannic spine on the lingering finish. As good as the Bressandes is, and it is indeed very good, there simply appears to be a supplemental dimension present here. *Don't Miss!*
Dark cherry, rhubarb, and red currant as well as hints of game inform the high-toned nose and tartly invigorating palate of Landanger’s 2008 Corton Clos Du Roi, which – tasted from tank – offers stark contrast with its sibling from the Bressandes. Alkaline, crushed stone, salt, and iodine-like mineral notes add piquancy to a long finish whose primary juiciness helps ward off austerity. I would anticipate 12-15 years of interest here. (DS)
Medium red, less bright than the 60 Ouvrees. Reticent aromas of redcurrant and smoked ham. Not fleshy but nicely dense and harmonious, with a generosity of texture leavened by juicy acidity. The black cherry, mint and pepper flavors are rather reserved today and in need of aging. (ST) 91+?
