Joseph-Drouhin-Corton-Bressandes-2016

Joseph Drouhin, Corton Bressandes, 2016

“Good structure when young, without any harshness. The nose is powerful, with aromas of candied fruit. As the wine ages, spice and musk are in evidence. A good Corton has a velvety texture (”gras") to counterbalance tannin and acidity. It is very persistent on the palate and ages well"
- Véronique Boss-Drouhin

The 2016 crop was low in quantity but its quality provides a nice surprise. The mature grapes gave deep ruby-coloured wines displaying notes of black fruit mingled with hints of violet and spices. The palate is round and generous. The wines are typical of their terroir.
