Corton 2017 Domaine de la Romanee Conti
|Brand||Domaine de la Romanee Conti|
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
|Condition||Bottle number digitally removed|
The 2017 Corton Grand Cru is performing beautifully from bottle, bursting from the glass with a captivating bouquet of peonies, rose hips, sweet red berries, orange rind, spices and subtle soil tones. On the palate, the wine medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with succulent acids, good concentration and a long, exquisitely perfumed finish. Indeed, it's only by comparison with the domaine's utterly suave wines from Vosne-Romanée later in the tasting that this Corton's tannins seem comparatively coarse-grained. Picked on September 4th, it is showing appreciably better than it did when I tasted it from tank before bottling last year.
