2016, Domaine Chandon de Briailles, CORTON-BRESSANDES, Grand Cru

$238
A slightly riper array of deeply pitched aromas includes notes of cassis, warm earth, game and soft spice wisps. The mouth feel of the moderately more concentrated flavours is finer as well with excellent richness yet the balanced, long and mouth coating finish manages to retain a lovely sense of energy and delineation. This too should drink reasonably well young if desired. 91-93 Burghound

Distinctly dark aromas of blackberry and cassis lifted by violet and mint nuances and complicated by a saline element. Ripe but classically dry, offering terrific density of texture as well as more thrust than the Maréchaudes. This wine is totally different in shape, finishing with broader, firmer, almost peppery tannins that dust the front teeth. Flavours of dark fruits and spices linger impressively. 91-94 Stephen Tanzer.
