RATINGS

92-95The Wine Advocate

...loads of jammy fruit, white flowers, licorice and spices...sumptuous...not typical of either Corton or Pinot...inhabits its own world and does so magnificently...the first vintage for the Cuvee de Bourdon (bumblebee)...

91-93Burghound.com

...fruit is ripe with intensely earthy, concentrated and overtly powerful broad-shouldered flavors that pack plenty of density on the mid-palate...robust, balanced and impressively persistent finish. This is a big but balanced effort.

18Jancis Robinson

Bourdon means bumblebees...Much more energy than most Cortons! Very impressive. Tense and lively and spreads right across the palate...

REGION

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.

TYPE

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.
