Domaine du Pavillon Corton Clos des Marechaudes Grand Cru MONOPOLE 2015 (4185)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Aloxe-Corton
Pinot Noir

Gold Medal and Trophy for the Best Corton at the International Wine Challenge 2017. "Wild and breezy with bright bramble fruit and a lovely rounded but dense palate. Classic, stony Corton fruit with a lovely balance between richness and invigorating freshness."

 

Jancis Robinson: Cask sample. 17 months in oak, 40% new. Deep crimson. Sweet, vanilla-edged cherry. Almost a touch of maraschino here. Then much drier and more savoury on the palate than I expected. Spiced and peppery in texture as well as flavour. More austere than the nose suggested but still well-shaped for the longer term. Grippy, moreish finish. (JH) (Drink between 2020-2032)  17++ points

(a ~1.9 ha monopole that is split between ~.5 ha classified as grand cru and the remaining 1.4 ha as 1er). Once again there is a hint of volatile acidity present on the otherwise similar if more complex nose. The velvety, round and equally seductively textured flavors possess a bit more overall size, weight and mid-palate concentration while delivering even better length on the powerful and built-to-age finish. Patience required. (91-94)/2027+

The 2015 Corton Clos des Maréchaudes Grand Cru, which is matured in 60% new oak, has a pure and elegant, very floral bouquet with wilted rose petals and violet blossoming on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannin, a keen line of acidity, a bold and punchy Corton Grand Cru with a firm, grippy finish. It comes across a little curmudgeonly at the moment, but it should be less uncouth by the time it is in bottle. At least there is decent substance here and the aromatics are already deliver the quality.

Located in the same clos as the Premier Cru of the same name, this comes from the upper part of the vineyards where the soils are very poor indeed. It’s a very pure expression of the Grand Cru, with pepper spice and red berry flavours, chalky acidity and fine tannins, especially for a Corton. 2024-30
