Domaine Chandon de Briailles, Corton Les Bressandes Grand Cru 1999

Beaune Imports, Emeryville CA.

Twenty years on.

Fox red. Very ’99, no bend or sway at all, a tall redwood beginning to rust.  A Corton of indominable spirit, an iron and nettle profile and the fruit runs to rosehip.  Poised and mineralic at the end.  Will still develop positively for another five to seven years.  A Bressandes for the jubilee.  Now – 2035+.
