Robert Parker 90-92
The 2014 Corton Bressandes Grand Cru has another detailed, precise and quite mineral-driven bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is poised on the entry, linear and taut with tart red cherry fruit mixed with strawberry and a touch of oyster shell coming through on the finish. Very fine, even if the Corton Marechaudes may have the upper hand with bottle age. We will see!
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2032
Good full red Pungent, musky whole-cluster notes of pepper, spices and sandalwood accent raspberry, smoke and underbrush; the vendange entier element dominates in the early going but in a very sexy way Supple red berry, smoked meat and underbrush flavors show lovely definition and an alluring sweetness, not to mention very good depth This is much smoother than it appeared to be last year when I tasted it just after the bottling Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and noteworthy rising length
