The 2022 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru comes from 1.5 hectares split over four parcels on different terroirs: two parcels in a former quarry with shallow soils in Aloxe-Corton and two from rich deep and ferrous soils towards Ladoix. The refined bouquet opens gradually in the glass: dark berry fruit, pressed iris flower, girolles and a touch of liquorice. The medium-bodied palate has very fine tannins. It’s gentle and caressing in the mouth, gradually building towards a disarmingly pure finish, a touch of white pepper on the aftertaste. Wonderful. 93-95 Neal Martin, Vinous (2023).

Unfurling in the glass with aromas of red berries, orange zest, rose petals and sweet spices, the 2022 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru is full-bodied, fleshy and ample, with a sweet, layered core of fruit framed by supple, powdery tannins. Rich but lively, it concludes with a long and expansive finish. The blue marls of this terroir seem to have held up well in the heat. 92-94 William Kelley, Wine Advocate (2024).

Four plots, two on the Aloxe side where the limestone is close to the surface, and two on richer deeper soil towards Ladoix. A rich powerful purple, unracked. Little wild berries. This is perfectly balanced in every dimension. It has tasted well since the beginning says Claude, and I certainly think so on today’s showing. A really fine finish with a plumpness to the fruit and a fine fresh feel. Top Corton! ***** 94-96 Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy (2023).

A subtle but not invisible application of wood sets off equally floral-suffused aromas that blend both red and blue pinot fruit. Once again there is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the bigger-bodied flavours that display evident power on the compact, balanced and impressively persistent finish. Excellent develop potential though note that this is very firmly structured. 92-95 Allen Meadows, Burghound (2024).
