2019 Thibault Liger-Belair Corton Grand Cru "Les Renardes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1550475 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Made with fruit purchased from a 0.32ha parcel planted in 1956, below Le Corton. 40% whole clusters and 60% new casks give a deeply aromatic wine, with abundant aromas of ripe blackberry, menthol, mineral and violets. On the palate, the texture is silky and very fine, yet there is a core of very firm tannins and great length. This has everything one wants in a Corton, from abundant fruit to firm structure and an immense finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An overly floral nose is suffused with a variety of aromas that include dark currant, plum, spice, earth and sauvage hints. There is fine volume to the very suave and generously proportioned flavors that are at once caressing yet powerful, all wrapped in an austere, firmly tannic and impressively long finale. This could be approached after say 7 to 8 years but its Corton roots make sure this will need 15 to 20 years to fully resolve. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

92-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "The rows run from top to bottom of the vineyard so this wine should show the whole expression of Renardes. There’s more soil at the top than bottom. 40% whole bunch, much more than usual. Rich dark raspberry fruit here, dark chocolate notes too but scarcely interfering with the stricter structure of Corton, very good length. Good wine. Tasted: November 2020."
