Aloxe Corton 1er Cru les Valozieres 2015
A liqueur-like nose features notes of cassis, various floral nuances, warm earth and enough wood to merit mentioning. There is outstanding volume to the robust, muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors that possess ample amounts dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the mid-palate and buffers the very firm, rustic and built-to-age finale that delivers excellent depth and length. This is definitely tannic but not really austere and if you have the patience, this would make for a very fine and age-worthy choice.
