Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    As with all the domaine’s grands crus this year, this is 100% whole bunch fermented fruit. Claude describes Maréchaudes as being whiter soil, creating a more floral style with open red fruit characters and gentle tannins. The most forward of all their grands crus at this stage.

    Score: 92-94

    The 2018 Corton Les Maréchaudes Grand Cru comes from a single 0.39-hectare parcel of 35-year-old vines and is matured in 20–30% new oak. Clean and precise on the nose, it offers crystalline red currant and cranberry fruit with a discreet mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and lovely sapidity. A Corton that gets the saliva flowing. The finish has a subtle marine influence with a tang of Japanese nori on the aftertaste. A Corton with elegance. 2023 - 2040

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2020,
    Score: 91-93

    A deft application of wood sets off the overtly spicy and ripe essence of red pinot fruit where additional breadth is present in the form of floral and earth nuances. There is excellent punch to the very well-detailed larger-scaled flavors that possess focused power on the solidly complex and sneaky long finish. This is perhaps a bit more refined than it usually is and a wine that should age well over the medium to longer-term. Drink 2030+

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.
