Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Corton Bressandes Grand Cru was cropped at a reasonable 22 hectoliters per hectare and this includes 80% whole-bunch fruit. It has a ripe and showy bouquet that neatly disguises the stem addition, perhaps trying a little too hard to impress at this early stage. Cassis and violet notes emerge with time and after two or three minutes it begins to gain more composure. The palate is well balanced with grainy tannin, more harmonious certainly than the Maréchaudes with a gritty, slightly disjointed yet fresh and charming finish that feels nicely focused. This is one to watch.
Between 16ºC and 18ºC
Fermented with indigenous yeasts and partly whole harvest (60% full clusters). Aged for 14 to 18 months in French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
