The 2014 Corton Grèves Grand Cru, which Frédéric Barnier told me was one of very few that reached full yield this year since it was not touched by hail, has a slight metallic note from a little reduction on the nose, although there appears to be plenty of red berry fruit underneath. The palate is well balanced with supple ripe tannin, crisp red cherry and raspberry notes, a gentle fanning out towards the finish that caresses this mouth. This should become a very winsome Corton Grèves -- lovely!

About this wine

Côte de Beaune

The Côte de Beaune is a prestigious wine region that stretches southwest from the town of Beaune in Burgundy and continues along the Côte d'Or. The Côte de Beaune is particularly known for its excellent white wines, made primarily from the Chardonnay grape. Some of the most famous white wines come from areas such as Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault, but although white wines predominate, red wines are also produced in the Côte de Beaune. Pinot Noir is the main grape, and some of the most recognized red wines come from areas such as Volnay, Pommard and Beaune. The Côte de Beaune is known for producing wines of high quality and prestige, and many of the area's wines are considered some of the best representatives of the Bourgogne style.
