Description

“A fresh blend is comprised by notes of both red and dark cherry along with plenty of earth and sauvage characters. The mouthfeel is like that of the Fourneaux in that the mid-palate is unusually fine in the context of the terroir though the finish is decidedly firm, rustic and very Aloxe in character. (87-90)/2028+” Allen Meadows

“The 2020 Aloxe-Corton Les Crapousuets is actually what was labelled “Village” and is exactly the same – Mallard has just decided to put the vineyard name on the label (although I guess it does not really translate . It offers a mix of black cherry and cassis fruit on the nose, just a touch of potpouri. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins on the entry, edgy and tensile, there is a slight angularity on the finish with a flinty aftertaste. Very fine, quite cerebral too.” 89-91 Neil Martin
