Domaine Lionel J. Bruck, Corton Grand Cru 1978

Lionel J Bruck, Corton Grand Cru, 1978

Thirty-five years on tasting.

Fully mature ochre color.  A compost nose: slightly stewed, vegetal, and evolved.  Tough and dried out now.  On a palate, just a touch better but not by much.  A bit coarse and the astringency shows.  Very little enjoyment here.  Don’t think it was all that much to begin with: a brutal old-school rusticity, we think.  Past whatever ‘best’ it had in the first place.
