Corton Bressandes Grand Cru 2017
Corton Bressandes Grand Cru: a 62 ares parcel of 65 year-old vines located in mid-slope, east exposed. This red Grand cru from Côte de Beaune presents a medley of vine peach and red fruits punctuated by smoky sandalwood notes and animated by a fine minerality that stretches the finish. It is a combination of power and delicacy in a dense weft of black fruit notes and ample charm which results in a wine of great finesse and beautiful structure.
