Edmon Cornu & Fils Corton Grand Cru Les Bressandes
SKU as configured
This wine explains why Corton is a Grand Cru, the only red that gains that status in the Cote de Beaune: excellent color, a bouquet of black and red fruits with hints of the forest ; broad on the palate ; smooth yet solid with sweet tannins ; a stellar performer from the outset with a structure and depth that rewards many years of cellaring. The vines in the Cornu parcel (a bit more than a half-hectare) are 30+ years of age on average (as of 2012). In this instance, the cooperage is about 30% new oak during the elevage.
