    Possibly the power of suggestion, but this wine feels the most regal of the grands crus at Chandon de Briailles. Full of wild alpine berry aromas, it is a beautiful style. The very fine tannins allow the fruit to caress the palate and a line of freshness runs throughout. Structured and yet harmonious.

  • Neal Martin, January 2020, Score: 94-96

    The 2018 Corton Clos-du-Roi Grand Cru comes from the upper contours of the slope. The wonderful bouquet of ebullient red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit is laced with truffle and undergrowth. This is the most sensual of Chandon des Briailles’s Cortons. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins, a superb line of acidity, a cashmere texture and multilayered red berry fruit mixed with Moroccan spices and white pepper on the long finish. Brilliant. 2023 - 2045

  • Burghound, April 2020, Score: 91-94

    Notably ripe yet still fresh and pretty aromas speak of liqueur-like dark berry fruit, earth, game and a floral top note, all of which is trimmed in touches of wood toast and menthol. I very much like the underlying sense of tension present on the more refined but still sizeable big-bodied flavors that are somewhat less muscular while still offering plenty of power and punch on the firm, serious and impressively long finish. Drink 2030+

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.
