Only 6 left!

Alcohol: 13.4%

Grape(s): Pinot Noir

Localization: Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France

Tasting Notes: A dark ruby color leads to a nose of freshness and refinement followed by a mid-palate with generous layers of stone, earth, and plum. The marvelously long finish is complex and satisfying.

Notes: Red wines from Corton are the only grand crus in the Cote de Beaune. Viewed by many as one of the top Cortons, Corton Bressandes rivals Clos du Roi for the best grand cru red wine in the region.  

94 Points Wine Spectator: A smooth red, infused with cherry, spice and sandalwood notes, showing a backbone of well-integrated tannins as this builds to a lingering aftertaste. Aromatic and harmonious, with a saturated finish echoing spice details and picking up a mineral element. Best from 2023 through 2045. 87 cases made, 50 cases imported.

Food Pairing: Corton-Bressandes should be served between 15 - 16 C/59- 61 F. A big wine that can stand up to strong-flavored meats, Les Bressandes also has the delicacy to be appreciated with more lightly-seasoned preparations, such as roast chicken and poached salmon, grilled vegetables, sauces with chanterelles or cepes, and cheeses including Morbier, Bucheron, Cantal, and St. Marcellin.

The Domain: Our 0.20 hectares of 45-year-old vines are located on a combination of clay and limestone soil, with good drainage and excellent exposure. This produces a ruly elegant Corton that combines grace and power.
