2012 Corton Bressandes Chandon de Briailles

Average critic rating : 91.0 points



This is more aromatically elegant than the Maréchaudes with an airy nose of various red berries along with moderate amounts of spice, floral and earth nuances. There is more tension if not more size and weight to the delicious mineral-inflected flavors that possess a lovely vibrancy, all wrapped in a tight and persistent but not especially austere finish. Indeed this is relatively approachable in the context of the appellation yet it should also age very well if desired. Tasted: Apr 15, 2014. Drink: 2024+



The 2012 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru does not quite match up to the delightful 2012 Pernand-Vergelesses on the nose, as if cowed by the over-performing premier cru! The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, chalky entry – tart red cherry fruit, strawberry and a dash of spice toward the finish that compensates for the recalcitrant nose. Give this a year or two in bottle to sort itself out. Wine Advocate.February, 2014

The Aymard-Claude de Nicolay family has run Domaine Chandon de Briailles since 1834. The Count and Countess Aymard-Claude de Nicolay were in charge from 1982 and now their children, Claude and François, have taken over. The estate – which is biodynamic - is based in the Northern area of the Côte de Beaune and covers over 13 hectares across the three villages of Savigny-lès-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. Wines receive between 14 to 18 months in oak barrels.
