Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
A dense, chunky style, packed with cherry, strawberry, currant, earth and tobacco flavors, all backed by beefy tannins. All the elements are in the right proportions, but this will take some time to unpack. Best from 2023 through 2042. 950 cases made, 270 cases imported.
The 2016 Château Corton-Grancey Grand Cru is showing very well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with a youthfully tight-knit bouquet of plums, cassis, subtle spices and incipient hints of forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with tangy acids, fine but firm structuring tannins and a long, expansive finish. Attractively complete and built for the cellar, this will reward bottle age.
Love the depth of fruit and intensity of this wine. It has dark fruit and floral undertones, as well as meat, which is very captivating. Full body, purity of fruit and nice, powerful tannins. Chewy and powerful. Focused austerity. A wine for the cellar. Try in 2022.
