A ripe nose of red currant fruit liqueur aromas displays added breadth in the form of violets, plum, black cherry and a hint of the sauvage. There is plenty of earth influence to the punchy, rich and well-detailed mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that possess some rusticity on the mildly austere and saline-inflected finish. This is surprisingly approachable for a young Corton and I really like the way that it fans out on the impressively persistent finale. Tasted: Apr 15, 2014. Drink: 2021+

Bottled in spring 2013, the 2011 Corton Grand Cru has an airy bouquet that is quite deceptive. Give it modest aeration and it unveils a hidden fruit intensity - raspberry and strawberry leaf, a slightly sauvage element to the aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with a very zesty, inviting entry. There is a meatiness to the fruit, irony almost, with superb definition and focus toward the finish. This has real character. This is a very accomplished Corton Rouge and a worthy follow-up to the outstanding 2010.||Time to fill in a small gap of notes relating to the most significant grower in the Corton hill - Bonneau du Martray. Jean-Charles suggested we taste recent vintages together after the 2012s, which I was more than happy to do.||A Becky Wasserman Selection, Le Serbet, various American importers, including: Atlanta Wholesale Wines, Atlanta, GA; tel.
