Tasting Notes

Discreet wood sets off liqueur-like aromas of red cherry that are laced with wisps of plum, violet and plenty of earth. There is fine concentration to the velvety medium weight plus flavors that brim with sappy dry extract, all wrapped in a highly persistent, balanced and beautifully complex finale. This is very ripe yet somehow manages to avoid being top heavy; indeed it is actually refreshing. In a word, excellent.

Score: 93Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (70), April 2018

Bright ruby in colour, with a ripe, rich and round nose of cherries and plums. There is a light toasty, smoky note underneath the waves of fruit. The palate is packed with red and black fruits, which are lined by ripe, chalky tannins that give a seamless texture. The acidity is bright and refreshing, pushing some of the fruit into high-toned blossom notes. Savoury spices mingle with a sultry smokiness through to the long finish. An impressive and seductive Corton.
