Intense bouquet with aromas of red and black fruit, spices and a touch of oak. Rich and structured on the palate, this wine needs a bit of patience in order to reveal its raciness and great distinction. Excellent ageing potential. Food/wine pairing: Venison, game birds, full-flavoured cheeses.

The 2015 Corton Grand Cru comes from vines with eastern orientation and is usually the last to be picked. It has a slightly irony, redcurrant and crushed strawberry-scented bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet, candied orange peel opening. There is something here that is a bit too exotic for my liking, and I wonder if it would have been better harvested even just a day earlier? Not bad, though I would prefer to see more breeding and sophistication.
