Tasting Notes: Dark red color. On the nose, in its youth, you can feel fresh red fruits evolving towards aromas of undergrowth with age. The very soft structure supports a very dense, fleshy wine with a lot of power and richness. Corton Bressandes may be relatively "closed" in his early youth. It marks its belonging to the Grands Crus through the expression of a range of flavors released later at the end of the mouth. It is on the spot "Bressandes" that we find the most elegant Cortons.
Pairing: It goes well with red meats, game and aged cheeses.
