Product Number: 11-80063
|APPELLATION / REGION||Cote de Beaune, Aloxe Corton 1er Cru|
|Tasting Note||eRobert Parker / WA : 87-89/100 Neal Martin The 2013 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru les Vercots has an expressive bouquet with blackcurrant pastille with just a dab of raspberry coulis. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, a crisp line of acidity and quite a firm, structured finish that imparts just a scintilla of austerity. Afford this a year in bottle if you can, and it should drink well for 4-5 years. Burghound (BH) : 89/100 Allen Meadows The deeply pitched and overtly sauvage inflected nose is comprised primarily by red currant, dark pinot and plenty of earth character. There is good volume and muscle to the relatively big-bodied flavors that possess a supple mid-palate where the finish then tightens up quickly. As is typically the case this is not an elegant wine but I like the frank and direct delivery. Wine Maker Tasting Note : Intense ruby colour. Complex nose displaying a great intensity of red fruits, mellow berry and spices. The palate presents harmonious balance, sustained tannins and great length. Good ageing potential. Match with red meat or cheese.|
