ワインアドヴォケイト：89-92 eRobertParker.com #216 (Part 2) Jan 2015 Neal Martin (89-92) Drink: 2017-2030
Unlike the Corton ’13, the 2013 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru was unaffected by hail. It has a ripe and fresh prune-tinged bouquet that is a little too showy for my liking. The palate is medium-bodied with quite dense, structured tannins. There is a spicy edge to the fruit, although contrary to expectations, I find slightly more harmony and finesse to the straight Corton this year. Actually, a feuillette showed more expressively and with more grace, so perhaps that is the shape of things to come?
アラン・メドゥ： 93ポイント Tasted: Apr 15, 2015Drink: 2025+Issue: 58Sweet spot As is often the case this is the best wine in the range with its slightly riper liqueur-like nose that features notes of kirsch, violet, plum, smoked game and a lovely floral nuance. The mouth feel of the big but not really imposing flavors is quite sophisticated thanks to the firm but fine tannic spine that shapes the mouth coating, saline and lingering finish. This is a wine of contrasts as the backend is at once slightly austere yet naturally sweet. Note that while this should more than amply reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring it will very likely drink well young too.
