DRC Corton Grand Cru 2017 750mL


WS 94 "The Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Corton Prince Florent de Merode 2017 features earthy black cherry, spice and iron aromas. Infused with a core of ripe fruit nicely framed by oak, it was fluid and supple, with a long, spicy finish (94 points, non-blind; $820). De Villaine and his team have done a lot of work in the Corton vineyards and the results have shown in the past three vintages. This bottling is a blend of the old vines from Bressandes, Renardes and Clos du Roi. The young vines from each parcel were grafted to the domaine's Pinot Fin selection 10 years ago and their future inclusion in the blend will add another component. (BS)" (March 2020)
