As is often the case this possesses the most elegant nose of the 4 Corton grands crus with its range of red and dark berry aromas that are cut with spice, earth, tea and a hint of anise. This sense of refinement continues on the well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the dusty and mouth coating finish that offers excellent complexity and persistence though there is a touch of backend warmth.
