Corton Blanc Grand Cru Cuvee Docteur Peste 2020
160th Hospices De Beaune Wine Auction on the 12th December 2020
There are four whites offered from the Corton family and one fabulous cuvée of Bâtard-Montrachet. The Cortons, happily, have returned to more normal yields after a deficit in 2019, and they are showing exceptionally well. These wines can age as well as their red counterparts.
Clear pale colour. There is an immediate sense of white fruit on the nose, a few apples behind. The grand cru quality shows in the way that the fruit builds at the back of the palate, integrating very well with the light toastiness that brings up the finish of this wine.
