Discreet if not invisible wood surrounds the complex but restrained red currant, spice, smoke, earth and sauvage permeated aromas. There is excellent power and plenty of punch to the broad-shouldered and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration before culminating in a balanced and exceptionally persistent finish. This classically styled Corton really does a slow build from the mid-palate on back, though note well that it will be pointless to open this in its youth; in fact, don't buy this unless you intend to cellar it.

Bright, dark red. Expressive, wild aromas of raspberry, spices, flowers, minerals, mint, leather and meat. Lovely sweetness and breadth but almost surprisingly open-knit for young grand cru. I find both overripe and minty elements here. In fact, this fruit was picked on September 4 with close to 14% potential alcohol, noted winemaker Prost, adding that he found it light at the beginning. "But it's growing every day in the barrel, like a white wine." Very tricky to judge today.
