Prince Florent de Merode Corton Les Bressandes Grand Cru, Cote de Beaune 2002
Tasted 10/11/12 with Sara, Chris and Fran. 75cl, cork closure, 13%. About £60 UK retail (at release). A privilege to share this wine from a great vintage - drinking very well now. This wine had real finesse and elegance, great cherry red colour in the glass, little sign of age, the nose was refreshingly youthful. There was real weight and structure on the palate, complex melange of red fruits and a hint of spice, this is a classic Corton. 18/20, from 2012.
