Le Corton Bouchard 2017 (750ML)
92-94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2017 Le Corton Grand Cru comes from 3.60 hectares at 280 meters above sea level, at the top of the slope, and is usually the last picked. It has an elegant, attractive bouquet of brambly red fruit, burned toast, truffle and a touch of smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, fine tannin, well-judged acidity and a generous, sophisticated, lightly spiced finish. A very refined Le Corton and one of the best crus from Bouchard in 2017." 1/19
92-93 Points, James Suckling: "The aromas are briary and fragrant, offering plenty of red flowers and red berries. The power here is also impressive and there's a very regal air to the tannins. Long and fine, very transparent and delicate. The exposure and altitude here gives good and slow ripening to high maturity. Try from 2023." 2/19
92 Points, Charles Curtis, Decanter: "Produced from the large parcel above Le Clos du Roi with limestone soils rich in iron. In 2017, the picking began on 7th September, and 20% of the fruit was fermented as whole clusters. The wine aged 15 months in cask, 35% new. The result showed a fairly light colour but a sweetly perfumed cherry fruit with a delicate floral edge. The texture is elegant and balanced, if lacking a bit of the power associated with the appellation."
