The 2015 Corton-Perrieres Grand Cru didn't show quite the same detail and terroir expression as the Corton La Vigne Au Saint this year, though there are still attractive blackberry, wild strawberry and licorice aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, good weight in the mouth, the fruit veering towards blackberry and mulberry towards the finish, a hint of cocoa lingering on the aftertaste. It needs to meld together but it should be fine by the time of bottling.
?Reduction presently overshadows the fruit. Otherwise there is excellent intensity to the more mineral-driven and muscular flavors that possess impressive size, weight and power, all wrapped in a very firm and strikingly persistent finish. While there is a hint of warmth the overall balance is such that this should generously reward extended cellaring but note well that this won't make for especially good early drinking.
