2019, Domaine Chandon de Briailles, CORTON 'BLANC' Grand Cru

Grand cru white - 90% from Bressandes with the remainder from Les Chaumes.

This was late to finish fermenting, but in tasteable condition. It has been made in one new Stockinger foudre of 10hl, the rest in normal sized older wood. Still full of primary aromatics, lactic too, just a question of the moment. It feels like a heavyweight behind. Decent weight to this, and a fresh thread through the middle. This should be good in its red soil way. Good decision to pick early, end August.
*** 92-95 Jasper Morris MW

Exotic fruit hints add breadth to the floral, citrus and white peach aromas. There is impressive power and richness to the much larger-scaled flavours that flash hints of melon and pineapple on the sappy and lingering finish.
90-92 Burghound.

The 2019 Corton Grand Cru Blanc reveals aromas of waxy orchard fruit, citrus rind, toasted almond and white flowers. Layered and full-bodied, it's rich and concentrated, with a textural but incisive profile and a long, tangy finish.
92-94 William Kelley.
