    (13.3% natural alcohol) Palish red. Reduced, wild nose shows smoked meat and rose petal. Fat, dense and sweet; with less gas, this comes across as softer than some of the preceding samples. A distinctly sweet style of 2004, finishing with very good length and a peppery nuance.

    This is the only wine to display overt wood influence with a smoky and slightly toasty border to the dark berry fruit and violet aromas plus a lovely touch of rose petal that merge into rich, full and naturally sweet flavors that display superb depth and outstanding complexity. As good as several of the other wines in the range are, this is clearly a cut above and finishes with a touch of austerity. A gorgeous wine of considerable class and not at all brutish like so many wines from Corton can be.

    Bruno Clavelier calls 2004 a |vintage of terroir. The aromas, character and even the tannic structure are very precise with respect to the underlying terroir. It was however a technically difficult vintage with oidium in some sectors and a general lack of luminosity in August, which caused me to doubt that we were going to make anything very interesting. Then, in parts of the C“te, particularly Gevrey, there was hail which caused us to do a massive sorting job, once just after the hail and then again at the harvest. There are vintages, like 2002 for example, that just make themselves and then there are vintages like 2004 where everything is a challenge and requires 2 to 3 times as much work, often for a lesser result. We picked between September 26th and October 3rd. Yields were almost as low as 2003 at between 20 and 33 hl/ha depending on the vineyard but we had good sugar levels at 12.5 to 13.2%. We did a normal vinification though with a d‚bourbage of 15 days. Because we waited to pick, we had correct if not great phenolic maturity and for me, 2004 is a blend of 2000 and 2001. I like the vintage and I think it's going to pleasantly surprise a lot of people.| If your taste runs to understated and ultra pure, and unadorned, burgundy, check out the Clavelier '04s.
