Dark color. Exploding aromas of black currant and cherries when young, turn to truffle and leatherwhen aged. Solid structure with firm and elegant tannins and a lively acidity.The aging potential of this wine is 15 to 20 years in great vintages.If you prefer young wines, keep 2 to 3 years for intense red fruits and after 6 to 8 years if you perfer melted tannins and greater complexity of aromas.
Genuinely of Grand Cru status, this is a dark and powerful Corton, but one that impresses by its freshness and concentration of juicy cherry fruit. Very long, with building of fine-grained tannins, Corton is overlooked at your peril.
