94Wine Spectator

A brooding nose of leather and cherry leads off, giving way to red fruit, wild strawberry and spicy white pepper flavors. Overall, this is rich and smoky, with firm, full tannins.

93The Wine Advocate

...captivating bouquet of peonies, rose hips, sweet red berries, orange rind, spices and subtle soil tones. On the palate, the wine medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with succulent acids, good concentration and a long, exquisitely perfumed finish.

93Vinous / IWC

White pepper, mint and pine perk up the red cherry and cranberry fruit flavors nicely. In 2017, the Corton is decidedly ethereal and pointed, with terrific energy and tons of class.

...possess a velvety mid-palate mouthfeel along with reasonable if not special density, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, balanced and sneaky long finish where a hints of warmth and sweetness eventually emerge.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Light, savoury, briary nose. Delicate and not remotely sweet. Quite a contrast to so many Cortons.

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.
