Aloxe Corton Rouge 2014
Here the wood treatment is a bit more evident though not so much as to materially intrude on the very ripe black cherry, plum, violet and warm earth-scented nose. There is both good energy and freshness to the solidly well-detailed and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess more refinement than one typically finds with Aloxe villages reds, all wrapped in a lingering finish where only a trace of rusticity can be found. This should drink reasonably well young but reward up to a decade of cellaring as well.
