2007 Chandon de Briailles, Corton MarechaudesApr. 2010
Under Bressandes from the northern part of Corton – more feminine and elegant than many. Medium colour. Tighter red fruits with a mineral dimension. Fuller in the mouth and the intensity is up a notch with impressively wide flavours, though the tannin seems on relatively background level. Slowly lingers on a savoury note.
2001 Chandon de Briailles, Corton MarechaudesFeb. 2010
Medium, medium-pale. The nose is oh-so scented, an obvious note of stems is intertwined with floral aspects over warm, red fruit – raspberry. Smooth and balanced, with an almost ethereal melting flavour impression. Like the nose it’s a warm red ‘comforting wine’ impression. It’s very ‘giving’ but that’s far from the same thing as ‘mature’ – tasty now but will live and growfor many years in the cellar…

Lovely pale-medium ruby colour. The nose starts a little reduced, cheesy and not quite right – gradually shows better. Nice fat palate though the acidity is a little spikey. Although past its best, there’s still a lot of wine here and will surely fade only slowly. Not fantastic, but quite interesting and enjoyable.
