Domaine Chandon de Briailles

750ML

£98.00

Notes of white fruit, citrus and dried flowers. The palate is rich with great concentration. The Corton Blanc Grand Cru yields from a tiny quarter hectare vineyard; 80% of which is planted in the climat of Bressandes, the remainder in Renardes and Les Chaumes. Most Corton, outside of Charlemagne is red, and so a Corton Blanc is a very rare beast.

    Description

    Domaine Chandon de Briailles is a beautiful property, dating back to the 17th century, and has been in the de Nicolay family since the early 19th century. The current owner/winemaker, Claude de Nicolay took over from his mother, Nadine, in 1988. Nadine stopped using pesticides and herbicides in the early 1980s and the vineyards have been organic since 1998. In 2005, the vineyard was certified biodynamic, and such is the family’s commitment to the purity of their powerful produce, the winery was also certified biodynamic (since 2012).

    Pale golden-yellow color. Highly perfumed scents of peach, lemon peel, licorice, ginger, nutmeg, aromatic herbs, licorice and mint. Dense and tactile on entry, they nicely sweet in the middle, with strong flavors of minerals, botanical herbs and mint. Quite powerful on the end, even a bit youthfully aggressive, with multidimensional finishing flavors of talc, citrus zest, brown spices and salty minerality. Outstanding soil-driven wine in the making, from vines that average about 30 years of age.
    93+/100 - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (Tasted March 2013)
