An outstanding Grand Cru in a superbe 2014 vintage. Keep it for that special moment !
AT A GLANCE
This Corton Grand Cru displays a great deep red color with purple hues. Very intense nose (raspberry, peony, tobacco). Mouth is very open and with a solid texture, yet still soft. Velvety tanins mingle very nicely with the oak, bringing a lovely texture and complexity. A deep wine that will age beautifully with time.
WINE & FOOD PAIRING
The structure of this Grand Cru from Corton allows it to play on a wide range of cuisines, from earthy home-made stews to nice red meats slowly cooked in a wine sauce or BBQ grilled. Will do well on strong cheese too.
Serve between 15 and 17°C. Cellar for 10 years or more, or enjoy in its prime with typical fruit and Burgundy Pinot Noir delicacy.
