This 2016 Domaine Edmond Cornu Corton Bressandes is a remarkable red wine that showcases the best of Burgundy. Made from the Pinot Noir varietal, this wine is a true expression of the terroir and craftsmanship of Domaine Edmond Cornu.

In the glass, this wine presents a deep, garnet-red color that is both inviting and elegant. The aroma is complex and enticing, with subtle wood influences that allow the ripe and earthy cassis, spice, and black raspberry aromas to shine through. It is a bouquet that captures the essence of the Cote de Beaune region.

On the palate, this Corton Bressandes reveals its true character. The wine is rich, full-bodied, and enveloping, with a suave yet tautly muscular mouthfeel. The flavors are a harmonious combination of ripe fruit and well-integrated oak, creating a symphony of flavors that dance on the tongue. The wine displays a remarkable balance between power and finesse, with Corton-like tannins that arrive at the very end of the exceptionally persistent finish.

This is a robust wine that is built to age and develop over time. While it is already enjoyable now, it will benefit from at least 5 years of cellaring to fully express its potential. As the wine matures, its flavors will continue to evolve and become even more complex, rewarding those who have the patience to wait.

The 2016 Domaine Edmond Cornu Corton Bressandes is a true gem from Burgundy, a wine that exemplifies the artistry and dedication of its producer. It is a wine that will impress even the most discerning wine connoisseurs and is a must-try for any lover of fine red wines.
