Bressandes is highly expressive, firm, and powerful thanks to the high limestone content of its soil. Often cited as one of the very best climats on the Corton hill, it shows aromas and flavors of red and blackberry liqueur, earthiness, flowers, and herbs with powerful tannins. Corton-Bressandes will reward long aging in a cool cellar. Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.

Ripe strawberry, cherry, sandalwood, rose and mineral aromas and flavors abound in this taut, racy red. Intense, succulent and harmonious, leaving a firm and mouthwatering finish. Terrific length. Best from 2023 through 2045.

The 2017 Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru, matured in 50% new oak, has an elegant, floral, seductive bouquet of pure raspberry preserve and crushed strawberry scents, along with touches of clove and wild heather in the background. The palate has more energy and tension than the Corton Grand Cru and shows impressive precision and length toward the lightly spiced finish. Excellent.
