Review from Burghound: Score: 92 (Jan 2011): An elegant nose of rose petal, red currant and wet stone gives way to rich, fresh and wonderfully vibrant big-bodied flavors that also evidence obvious minerality on the mouth coating and impressively long finish. This doesn't have the same level of complexity of the regular Corton but given that it will need 12 to 15 years to arrive at its peak, my score offers the benefit of the doubt in this regard.

Full and round and nutty. Very dry finish but with convincing fruit before that. Very fresh.
