2016 Chandon de Briailles Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539738 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru is also showing extremely well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis, ripe plums, dark chocolate, dried flowers and spices. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and velvety, with a deep, layered core, succulent balancing acids and a long, intense and beautifully soil-driven finish. Cropped at 22 hectoliters per hectare, this is an exceptional Bressandes that will be well worth seeking out. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red-ruby. Distinctly dark aromas of blackberry and cassis lifted by violet and mint nuances and complicated by a saline element. Ripe but classically dry, offering terrific density of texture as well as more thrust than the Maréchaudes. This wine is totally different in shape, finishing with broader, firmer, almost peppery tannins that dust the front teeth. Flavors of dark fruits and spices linger impressively. I suspect that this wine will need considerably longer cellaring than the Maréchaudes. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A slightly riper array of deeply pitched aromas includes notes of cassis, warm earth, game and soft spice wisps. The mouth feel of the moderately more concentrated flavors is finer as well with excellent richness yet the balanced, long and mouth coating finish manages to retain a lovely sense of energy and delineation. This too should drink reasonably well young if desired. Inner quote mark (4/2018)
