The Grand Cru is a powerful wine with a structure similar to Côte de Nuits wines. The vineyard orientation allows to elaborate a wine with silky tannins and harmonious acidity. Les Grèves is a South east exposure vineyard based on a siliceous soil. This gives power and delicacy to the wine. This exceptional site yields a powerful and delicate wine, with a deep colour and powerful aromas of little red fruits and spicy notes. Its silky tannins and perfect structure will allow a good ageing. The red wines will complement fine dishes like meat in a highly-seasoned sauce, game and most cheeses.

The 2014 Corton Grèves Grand Cru, which Frédéric Barnier told me was one of very few that reached full yield this year since it was not touched by hail, has a slight metallic note from a little reduction on the nose, although there appears to be plenty of red berry fruit underneath. The palate is well balanced with supple ripe tannin, crisp red cherry and raspberry notes, a gentle fanning out towards the finish that caresses this mouth. This should become a very winsome Corton Grèves -- lovely!
