Sappy perfumed nose offers cherry white pepper crushed stone mint and menthol. Wonderfully velvety in the mouth but with superb energy and definition to the pungent mineral and fresh raspberry flavors. Boasts a three-dimensional texture and great sweetness. Peppery acidity and uncanny soil complexity stain the palate on the finish which features outstanding finesse of tannins. A worthy successor to the great 2009.

A brooding deep and introverted nose grudgingly gives up notes of cassis earth wood and a hint of animale. The intense brawny and imposingly structured flavors possess superb volume and almost breathtaking power on the explosive and mouth coating finish that is of monumental proportions. This is a classic Corton yet consistent with the style of the 2010 vintage this is not unduly rustic indeed the tannins while firm are actually relatively refined. A knock out by any standard but at the same time a wine for the genuinely patient. - Comments: Don't miss!

Pure floral cherry and spice aromas and flavors highlight this aromatic lush and silky red. Finishes on the taut side but with intensity and a vibrant structure. Shows fine length with soft tannins and a savory mineral... Pure floral cherry and spice aromas and flavors highlight this aromatic lush and silky red. Finishes on the taut side but with intensity and a vibrant structure. Shows fine length with soft tannins and a savory mineral aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2029. -B.S.

Not unlike the Beze one experiences another absolutely lush and hedonistic aromatic profile here. In all the years of experiencing Cortons there have been precious few that can compare with the sheer thrill of the aromatics and flavor profile of this singular effort. While there is certainly the requisite tannin and acidity buried deep inside the wine's structure to reward extended cellaring it is totally buffered by the miles of sweet sappy fruit and intense viscosity. Another wow wine this too is a "must-have" for the vintage. 95+
