Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

Plush and ripe, this red offers a mix of black cherry, blackberry,violet, vegetal and mineral flavors, starting out a bit slowly, then gathering steam as it builds to a long, saturated finish. Complex, expressive and just a little wild too. Best from 2022 through 2043.—B.S. Wine Spectator
A brooding nose of kalaeidescopic complexity, featuring notes of red and black cherry, cassis, iron-like soil tones, woodsmoke and cocoa. It is deep, full-bodied and beautifully minerally on the palate, structured by fine tannins and juicy acids.

Tasting note: A slightly more elegant if not quite as fresh combination exhibits a pretty mix of red currant, cherry, plum and subtle earth nuances. There is excellent volume to the richer and slightly rounder medium-bodied flavors that are at once utterly delicious yet entirely serious, all wrapped in a lingering finish where hints of bitter cherry and warmth appear. This is finer if not quite as vibrant as the regular cuvée of Corton and should mature a few years earlier. 2017+ Allen Meadows – Burghound
Inviting dark red color. Aromas of black cherry, currant, raspberry, woodsmoke and soil convey a juicy quality, as with the other 2015s I tasted at this address. Densely packed, suave and quite concentrated, conveying a minty medicinal reserve to its dark berry and black cherry flavors. Serious Corton grand cru with terrific inner-mouth energy. This refined, penetrating wine is most impressive today on the back end, where it spreads out to perfume the mouth without leaving any impression of weight. The firm tannins are perfectly supported by the wine's intense fruit. This should evolve slowly and gracefully. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media
