Good medium red. Captivating, nuanced nose combines cherry, rose petal, blood orange and an exotic suggestion of white fruits that Landanger says is characteristic of this grand cru. Fat, chewy and sweet, but also quite suave thanks to its vinosity and structure. This builds impressively toward the back and displays impressive length and grip.

The 2005 Corton Bressandes displays positively peachy, generically-ripe aromas (pushing 14% alcohol, which is the maximum here this vintage, eventually generating a faint bit of warmth) and with notes of cedar and a slightly funky gaminess behind that. It comes onto the palate with a certain roughness of tannin, though with persistently sweet fruit that takes on more Pinot-typical berry character and a broad, beefy richness. This big-boned, undeniably dense wine was only bottled for a week when I tasted which may account for some of its roughness and awkwardness, but I wonder also about the premature gaminess.
