94 points Allen Meadows, Burghound
"An attractively ripe and more complex nose features aromas of wild red berries, plenty of earth, wet stone, spice and sauvage hints, all of which is trimmed in a deft amount of oak. There is a sleek muscularity to the impressively dense big-bodied flavors that possess good energy on the detailed, clean and refreshing finish is firm, serious and moderately austere finish."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The Cornu family settled in the town of Ladoix in 1870 and established the domaine in 1875. Edmond Cornu assumed command of the estate in 1956 and in 1959 began to bottle the fruits of his labor. Corton Grand Cru Les Bressandes: This wine explains why Corton is a Grand Cru, the only red that gains that status in the Cote de Beaune: excellent color, a bouquet of black and red fruits with hints of the forest; broad on the palate; smooth yet solid with sweet tannins; a stellar performer from the outset with a structure and depth that rewards many years of cellaring. The vines in the Cornu parcel (a bit more than a half-hectare) are 30+ years of age on average.
