Peter Maude Fine Wines

2018, Domaine Ponsot, CORTON Cuvée du Bourdon Grand Cru


There is a touch of the sauvage to the ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis, violet and earth. The decidedly fleshy full-bodied flavours possess good power and mid-palate density while displaying very good energy on the firmly structured, serious finale. This is an old school Corton that is clearly built-to-age. 90-93 Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Grapes from three suppliers and three plots: 60% Les Paulands, 20% Clos du Roi and 20% Renardes. Beautiful fresh purple. Rather an elegant nose, with a certain freshness behind, middleweight, this is a stylish rendition of Corton. ****91-94 Jasper Morris MW.

Wafting from the glass with notions of cherries, raspberries, potpourri, spices and forest floor, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, with real energy and excellent structural refinement. 91-93+ William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
