  • Goedhuis, November 2017

    A blend from the two parcels Corton Chaumes and Corton Bressandes, but predominantly the latter in this cuvée. An appealing blend of tropical melon fruits and hints of white peaches and fresh pears. A very giving style that is approachable now. It has a layered texture expressing the true class of its origins.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 88-90

    The 2016 Corton Blanc Grand Cru, nearly all from Bressandes and augmented with fruit from Les Chaumes, has a rich, honeyed bouquet with curry leaf scents quickly emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry. The acidity here is well judged and there is a pleasant nuttiness toward the finish, although it does miss the tension and nerve of previous vintages, indicating that this will be best enjoyed in its youth. Drink 2019-2024

  • Burghound, June 2018

    Pungent aromas are composed by notes of petrol, floral and apple along with whiffs of spice and wood. The round, rich and solidly voluminous flavors are at once powerful and caressing on the serious, moderately firm and lingering finish. This is a classic Corton Blanc as there is plenty of wine and character but limited refinement. Drink: 2021+

Producer

Domaine Chandon de Briailles

The sibling team at this stunning domaine (Francois and Claude de Nicolay) is most definitely a winning one. Their biggest influence has been to convert the estate firstly to organic and now to biodynamic methods of viticulture and vinification. The wines focus on sensual flavours and refinement, these are not powerful, but the aged vines allow for wines of extraordinary texture and complexity.

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
