95Wine Enthusiast

Cherry richness, sometimes with an overtone of chocolate, fills the generous but defined palate where velvety tannins are firm underneath their supple surface. They still crackle but reveal ample freshness and verve on the rich, muscular and toned body. Aromatic tenderness returns on the finish.

94The Wine Advocate

...performing superbly, bursting with aromas of plums, red berries, rose petals, orange rind and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with beautifully refined tannins, lively acids and a bright, mineral finish...

94-96Vinous / IWC

...very composed, detailed bouquet of blackberry, wild strawberry and pressed rose petal aromas...palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins and wonderful acidity. Very harmonious, with an almost luxurious but compelling finish. Superb.

93Wine Spectator

The bright, fresh black cherry fruit is framed by vanilla and toasty oak in this dense red. It gets a lift from the compact tannins, that leave a dusty, cocoa-like feel on the taut finish.

A cool but ripe nose is quite restrained with its elegant array of red cherry and abundance of floral nuances and particularly lavender. There is good intensity to the delineated and stony medium weight flavors that display a taut muscularity on the lingering if somewhat bitter and clipped finale.

16+ Jancis Robinson

Five-spice and sweet plum on the nose. Opulent and full bodied, with luscious red and black fruits and a velveteen texture. Warm and succulent on the finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, Le Corton

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.
