2003 Domaine Marius Delarche Corton-Renardes Grand Cru Reserve Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1206275 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Chocolate, roasted spices, and intense black fruit aromas can be found in the nose of the backward, highly extracted 2003 Corton-Renardes Vieilles Vignes Reserve (red). This concentrated wine is medium to full-bodied, broad-shouldered, and firmly structured. Tar, licorice, and jammy plums are intermingled with black cherry syrup in its tannin-laden character as well as in its exceptionally long finish. (PR) Inner quote mark (8/2005)

K&L Notes

Domaine Marius Delarche is a not-so-well-known name that occupies a small slice of the very famous hill of Corton. Established in the 1940s, the estate is now operated by Etienne Delarche, farming some 9 hectares in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. The estate has been called, by a wine importer, "Certainly the Côte de Beaune’s best-kept secret—gorgeous wines made by an honest winemaker for prices that reminded of decades past." The old vines of the Corton-Renardes were planted near the summit of the noble hill of Corton around the 1950s. Look for a brooding and layered character, with notes of licorice and peppery spice.
