Intense dark ruby red. Very tempting, precise, fresh red berries (cherry, cherry-stone), evolving into slightly toasted notes on the nose. The palate is tender, flavorful, fruity and fleshy (fresh cherry). Fine and digestible tannins on the finish.

"Matured with 30% whole bunch and aged in 60% new oak, the 2018 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru has an attractive bouquet of red berry fruit and touches of mint and meat juices, all nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, good balance and gentle grip. It turns a little savory toward the finish, and a pinch of white pepper and sage lingers on the aftertaste. This is a well-crafted Corton that should age with style."
