Description

As we arrive to the trio of Corton wines here, the Marechaudes is always the most graceful, feminine example of the trio. Its purity, precision, and lift are plain stunning to me, the kind of archetypal example that one could only wish for. In style meets substance, with fine supporting tanning structure, this is poised for a fantastic evolution. A little * awarded here.
“The 2016 Corton Les Marechaudes Grand Cru has a very well-defined bouquet with black cherry, bergamot and Spanish oranges, very well defined and conveying superb energy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly grainy tannin, minerals lingering on the structured, très Corton finish. This is utterly charming.” 92-94 Neil Martin

“A ripe and agreeably fresh nose offers up aromas of violet, red currant and earth, all of which is trimmed in whiffs of soft spice and oak. The mouth feel of the middle weight plus flavors is more elegant than it usually is while delivering very good depth and persistence on the bitter cherry-inflected finish. This firmly structured effort should drink well after 6 to 8 years of cellaring though need 12 to 15 to fully resolve. 92/2031+” Allan Meadows
