Corton Bressandes, Domaine Chandon de Briailles 2009

Tasting Notes

This is also very ripe but here the cassis, violet and black berry aromas are noticeably fresher. The rich, intense and broad-shouldered flavors display a distinct mineral character and better elegance to the dense but fine tannins that shape the hugely long finish. This has the potential to be outstanding but it will require the better part of two decades to arrive at its peak.
Note: three separate plantings with an average vine age of about 35 years
