Region : Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Varietal : 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes : Its colour is rather deep, its nose powerful and verging on candied fruit and spices when maturing. It has good structure in the mouth, without harshness. A good Corton must have a velvety texture to counterbalance tannin and acidity. On the palate, it recalls the candied fruit present in the nose. Very long and persistent, it ends on a very complex note.
Vintage : The wines offer a good breadth. The tannic structure is not too present. In Côte de Beaune the wines are more heterogeneous and some of them can be drunk.
Best enjoyed at 16°C. Drink now or cellar up to 27 years.
