Bouchard P&f le Corton 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Discreet if not invisible wood surrounds the complex but restrained red currant, spice, smoke, earth and sauvage permeated aromas. There is excellent power and plenty of punch to the broad-shouldered and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration before culminating in a balanced and exceptionally persistent finish. This classically styled Corton really does a slow build from the mid-palate on back, though note well that it will be pointless to open this in its youth; in fact, don't buy this unless you intend to cellar it....92-94" BH 04/13 "Bright, dark red. Expressive, wild aromas of raspberry, spices, flowers, minerals, mint, leather and meat. Lovely sweetness and breadth but almost surprisingly open-knit for young grand cru. I find both overripe and minty elements here. In fact, this fruit was picked on September 4 with close to 14% potential alcohol, noted winemaker Prost, adding that he found it light at the beginning. "But it's growing every day in the barrel, like a white wine." Very tricky to judge today...89-93" IWC 02/13

The reputation of the Grands Vins fins de Bourgogne is based on two varieties alone : Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. As early as 1866, Dr Jules Guyot in his book on viticulture of the centre north of France, wrote that: " the essence of the fine wines of the Côte d'Or, is the grape variety, the Pineau Noir or Noirien for the red wines; the Pineau Blanc or Chardenet for the white wines ".
