94Wine Spectator

Marked by kirsch, spice and underbrush notes, this red is intense and solidly built, with concentrated cherry and berry fruit. Juicy midpalate, leading to long, chalky finish.

93The Wine Advocate

...inviting bouquet of cherries, raspberries and red plums, mingled with notes of orange rind, sweet spices and flowers. On the palate, it's full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with velvety tannins, excellent depth at the core, succulent acids and a perfumed finish.

91Vinous / IWC

...attractive, wild strawberry, orange blossom and pomegranate bouquet, pure and charming and quite Chambolle-like in style. The palate is fleshy on the entry, delivering fine grip and decent red fruit laced with white pepper and graphite, but it tapers toward the finish...

The pure, pretty and restrained aromas of essence of wild red currant are redolent with plenty of the classic earth and sauvage characters of a classic Corton that are set off by prominent wood and menthol. There is a beguiling freshness and sense of energy to the focused and sleekly muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess an almost pungent minerality on the tight and grippy finish that will need time to resolve.

Really grabs the attention and has both fruit and structure...

Corton is a Grand Cru vineyard for red wine within the Corton appellation. It is a long, slender, stony limestone site that wraps part way around the top slopes of Montagne de Corton, a hill that reaches to 1,150 feet. The 234-acre vineyard primarily faces south, west and east, and is sheltered by a windbreak of trees while also receiving excellent exposure to sun. Corton is the Cote de Beaune’s only red Grand Cru. The largest producers are Louis Latour, with 37.5 acres; Hospices de Beaune, with 16 acres; and D'Ardhuy, with 11.85 acres. The names of smaller vineyards within Corton are frequently added to the names of Corton wines, resulting in names such as Corton Les Renardes, Corton Les Chaumes, Corton les Perrieres, etc.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
