Silky and lush, with cherry, raspberry and smoke aromas and flavors in an approachable style. Balanced, though this needs time to resolve all the components. Offers fine spicy length. Best from 2018 through 2030. (BS)
Unlike the Corton ’13, the 2013 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru was unaffected by hail. It has a ripe and fresh prune-tinged bouquet that is a little too showy for my liking. The palate is medium-bodied with quite dense, structured tannins. There is a spicy edge to the fruit, although contrary to expectations, I find slightly more harmony and finesse to the straight Corton this year. Actually, a feuillette showed more expressively and with more grace, so perhaps that is the shape of things to come? (NM)
Bright dark red. Deep, pure aromas and flavors of black cherry, minerals, bitter chocolate and spices; less open on the nose than the Corton but more serious. At once dense and lively on the palate; a lovely savory, elegant grand cru with a fine-grained texture and a sexy balance of flesh, sweetness, and freshness Still holding dark fruits in reserve but this classy wine spreads out horizontally on the back end, finishing firm but not at all hard. Distinctly airier and less massive than the Corton, and balanced to age gracefully. (ST) 91+
