This is earthier and a good deal more sauvage as well with its cool and well-layered and deeply pitched aromas of black cherry, dark pinot, humus and freshly turned earth. There is outstanding volume and plenty of mid-palate concentration to the more lightly mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that possess a velvety mouth feel before culminating in a moderately austere and firmly structured finale. While this is an elegant Corton it remains a Corton and thus is definitely going to require at least 7 to 8 years of patience first.
