Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 91

The 2017 Corton Grand Cru was picked on 5 and 8 September and comes from Les Renardes but it also contains some fruit from the little known “Hautes Mourottes” and is made using vinification intégrale. It is deep in colour, and the bouquet is comparatively closed vis-à-vis Drouhin’s other Grand Cru, seeming quite broody, with blackberry and subtle iodine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, one of the most muscular from Drouhin this year, and the saline finish is lightly spiced. Give it three or four years in bottle… at least. [Neal Martin, 10/01/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2038

Robert Parker – 92

Derived mostly from Renardes this year, the 2017 Corton Grand Cru is a definite success, offering up aromas of cassis, spicy soil, grilled meat and dark chocolate. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, layered and incisive, with good depth at the core, fine but firm structuring tannins and a long finish. [William Kelley, 24/12/2018]
