Corton Clos des Meix Grand Cru Monopole 2011
This offers a marked step up in complexity with its dense nose of plum, dark currant, earth, sauvage and anise scents. There is excellent underlying tension though not quite the same mid-palate concentration to the somewhat bigger flavors that exude a fine minerality on the firm and mildly austere finish. While this will need time to reach its full apogee, the supporting tannins are relatively fine and thus this will be approachable young if desired.
