Brilliant wine - fragrance is so enticing with an initial right amount of funk that blows off over a hour to two - Light to medium body - excellent mouthfeel - still needs time but extraordinary red ripe fruit - very Pommard - polished but not the harshness or austerity that many young red burgs I have had of late - needs 2 hours plus decanting for this is a youngster and will improve over 5 years - could be 9.7 then

The 3rd and final Corton Rouge tasted blind. Wonderful fragrance and palate intensity - obvious whole bunch in the ferment. A bit too much for some tasters in the group. 2016 is a great year for Corton Rouge and in relative terms quite good value. It does not have the head spinning prices one sees in Vosne Romanee, Musigny or Chambertin.

The elusive Corton Rouge! Masculine, earthy and spicy red fruits. Still much life to live, but absolutely perfect now.

At first I was really disappointed. Seemed like there was nothing there - just an angular angry wine without any fruit or purpose. I moved on to other wines and had a little left in the glass. Hour or more later I go back to the wine and the fruit magically reappears. Seemingly more in balance and voluptuous I really enjoyed the last sips. Interesting.
