(from a .5 ha parcel). Here too there is just enough VA to mention but not so much as to significantly impair the appeal of the well-layered array of red currant, cherry, dark raspberry, earth and a trace of menthol character. The rich, full-bodied and admirably concentrated flavors possess focused power on the overtly muscular yet refined finale that delivers seriously good persistence on the well-balanced finish. Note that while this is very clearly built-to-age, it should be reasonably accessible after only 6 to 8 years. 2031+
The 2016 Corton Bressandes Grand Cru has a perfumed bouquet with ample redcurrant, cranberry and blueberry scents, hints of iris and incense developing with time. The new oak (30%) is neatly integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, quite saline on the entry with a sense of focus and harmony. It became more spicy, almost peppery toward the finish, which is fine and quite detailed. Excellent. (NM)
Good dark red-ruby. More red berries to go with the aromas of black cherry, pepper and spices, plus a sexy hint of blood peach. Captivating, gentle, broad wine with dark berry and cherry flavors accented by spices, noble herbs and tangy verbena. Rich, subtle, penetrating Bressandes with fine tannins and noteworthy breadth and verve. Really distinctive soil complexity here. (ST)
