The 2010 Corton Bressandes here is a beautiful wine in the making. The wine was made with sixty percent whole clusters in this vintage. The deep and utterly brilliant nose soars from the glass in a blaze of red plums, currants, strawberries, a touch of cinnamon, a magically complex base of soil, orange zest and a gentle topnote of smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and stunningly pure on the attack, with a sappy core of fruit, superb transparency, plenty of fine-grained tannins and outstanding length and grip on the young seamless and stony finish. A beautiful bottle of Corton.
Moderately saturated medium red. Initially smelled like a white wine, with its wild mint and citrus peel scents, then opened to reveal cherry, raspberry and red licorice. Densely packed and utterly seamless, with a restrained sweetness and excellent energy to the tactile, lightly saline middle palate. Conveys a strong impression of solidity without any excess weight. With its perfectly integrated acidity, this grand cru really stimulates the taste buds on the superb, rising finish. Should age a long time. (ST)
Floral, vegetal and sweet spice aromas lead off, with cherry, strawberry and chalky mineral notes picking up the pace as this sinewy red develops. Airy and austere, this will need some time. Best from 2016 through 2035. (BS)
