An intensely floral nose enjoys a strikingly broad range of aromas that include spice, earth, herbal tea on the array of both red and dark cherry scents. The mid-palate of the impressively concentrated medium weight flavors is quite supple for a Corton yet the finish tightens up substantially on the lingering, dusty and saline-inflected finish. This firm and beautifully complex effort will need at least 7 to 8 years of bottle age before being approachable. I would note that there is enough CO2 present on the finish to warrant decanting this for a few minutes first. Impressive.
