I think I can re-use this bottle for weight-training – even after it is drained! Medium, medium-plus colour. There’s a faintly roasted red fruit note but overall the nose is rather fine. Across your tongue this is soft and reasonably silky with good depth of flavour. Very good length but overall I think it needs to be more engaging – this is the vintage vernacular, rather than the domaine.
Deep ruby colour showing just a little amber at the rim. The nose has deep, cooked black cherries and much soil and undergrowth. Still tannic with refreshing acidity, there is nicely concentrated fruit which finishes reasonably long, ending on a note of licorice. This is a rough, tough Corton – just how I like them, but is spoiled a little by a consistent astringency. Still pretty good though.
