The gorgeous bouquet is a complex and very pure blend of red and black cherries, gamebirds, Asian spices, iron-like soil tones, coffee, woodsmoke, cocoa and a touch of fresh nutmeg in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure on the attack and very stony in its soil profile, with a sappy core, superb transparency, ripe, well-integrated tannins and simply stunning length and grip on the young and very, very refined finish. A great bottle of Corton in the making!

There is more tension if not more size and weight to the delicious mineral-inflected flavors that possess a lovely vibrancy, all wrapped in a tight and persistent but not especially austere finish. Indeed this is relatively approachable in the context of the appellation yet it should also age very well if desired.

Black cherry and cranberry fruit aromas show an almost candied quality, with spice and stone nuances providing lift. Dark fruits perked up by white pepper and minerals on the intense palate. Finishes with pronounced minerality, excellent length and no hardness. I would not be surprised if this very precise wine shut down in the bottle. -- Stephen Tanzer
