Wow. This is a solid Corton with ripe strawberries, plums, bark and porcini. Full-bodied with tight, fine tannins, focused depth of fruit and excellent length. Quite muscular for the vintage. Better after 2023.

Beautifully heady yet seems perfectly poised. The new oak adds a sheen which the wealth of fruit can support. Something of everything on the nose here, even a faint green streak. Very fresh style which is typical of their vineyard. Lots of energy. Note this is tasted after the riper and more luscious Côte de Nuits wines.

There is excellent energy to the stony medium weight plus flavors that are at once succulent yet powerful where the latter carries over to the serious, firmly structured and mildly warm finish that goes on and on. This somewhat rustic effort is very Corton in basic character and a wine that's going to require patience.

This site, just over three hectares, is essentially a northern continuation of Les Renardes. In 2018, the vineyard delivered a tightly wound and tannic wine with lots of dark fruit. For now, it is marked by the cask aging, but there are the firm tannins, rich body, and length to suggest this will age exceptionally well.

Medium to full-bodied, rich and elegantly muscular, its ripe core of fruit structured by powdery tannins and lively acids, it's long and expansive. This is a deep, brooding Clos des Corton that will demand bottle age to realize all its potential. - William Kelley
