Corton Greves, Louis Jadot 2016
A conspicuously spicy broad-ranging nose combines notes of red and dark raspberry with those of earth and wood. The attractively energetic, intense and reasonably well-detailed big-bodied flavors possess obvious muscle while exhibiting excellent depth and persistence on the very, very firm and mildly rustic finish where the only small reproach is a touch of warmth. This is potentially excellent but note well that this is clearly built-to-age. Drink: 2031+

The 2016 Corton Grèves Grand Cru was showing quite a bit of oak on the nose but there was more than enough fruit packed behind it. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity with a subtle marine influence surfacing toward the finish that just tapers in when I want it to fan out. But this is a pretty Corton Grèves in the making. 2020 - 2040
