The Wine:
100% destemmed, traditional vinification in thermoregulated stainless steel vats. Vatting of 15 days. Matured for 12 to 15 months partially in oak barrels, 30% new, as well as stainless steel tanks. 

Glowing color, liquor like aromas of plum and dark raspberry, earthy and floral wisp. A velvety feel, attractive fruits and dense flavors in the mouth. Concentration and persistence on the impeccably balanced finale.

The Review:
Neal Martin, Vinous - 92-94pts
"The 2020 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru has quite a stony, mineral-driven bouquet that is requires more coaxing than the Corton-Perrières. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity, lightly spiced with a harmonious finish that fans out beautifully. This is quite a sensual wine but I suspect it may well close up and warrant long-term cellaring. Drink 2026-2046."
