The 2013 Corton Grand Cru was picked on October 3 at an average yield of 19.5 hectoliters per hectare. It has a light blueberry and crushed strawberry-scented bouquet that does not quite possess the intensity of the 2013 Echézeaux. There is a hint of fresh fig that emerges with time in the glass. The palate is clean and fresh. There is something almost "airy" about this Le Corton, with pitch perfect acidity and perhaps more transparency than I have observed in earlier vintages. It does not boast great density and fruit concentration on the finish, and perhaps it is just deprived the substance that a more benevolent season would have bestowed. Nevertheless, it is a delicious, almost easy-drinking little ingénue of a Corton that will give much drinking pleasure over the next 12-15 years. Production is 461 cases. Tasted February 2016.

Tasting note


The 2013 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Corton Grand Cru is a testament to the finesse and elegance that Burgundy wines can achieve. This organic wine, hailing from the esteemed Corton Grand Cru vineyards, offers a radiant ruby hue and a bouquet brimming with ripe cherries, orange zest, and a medley of herbs and hay. With aeration, notes of licorice and cool ash emerge, adding complexity to the already captivating nose. On the palate, it dances lightly, revealing accessible red fruit flavors, a juicy and crisp character, fresh acidity, and a body that ranges from light to medium. The structure is solid, supported by well-integrated, fine tannins. The finish is harmonious, lingering with flavors of blood orange and a delicate salinity. While this Corton is already pleasantly approachable, it also possesses the potential to evolve beautifully over the next one to two decades. Enjoy now through 2032.
