Albert Bichot Corton Grand Cru 2010 (679)

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

This Monopole is 0.55 ha in size and faces directly east on the Corton hill. At this price this Grand Cru is less than many Premier Crus from other makers.


The price represents extremely good value for an Award Winning Grand Cru Red!

 

Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report: Rather tight aromas yet obviously of crystal clear, crystallised dark fruit. Silky, wide and then extra-wide in the mid-palate. Very, very impressive.

Fine elegant wine with good intensity classic pinot noir structure. Beautiful! Wine that will improve with age. Gold Medal and Trophy for best Corton of the Year

Compared to the 1er this is far less expressive at present even though the fruit is clearly very ripe though the black cherry, cassis and menthol-suffused aromas stop short of being surmature. There is excellent volume and concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that brim with mouth coating dry extract before concluding in an overtly rustic and austere finish of simply huge length. This is a classic Corton of almost painful intensity but also impeccably good balance. Clos des Maréchaudes is rarely mentioned in the same breath as the best of Corton but this is a seriously impressive wine that is built for the very, very long haul. As such I would strongly advise that you not buy this unless you expressly intend to cellar it accordingly as this is unlikely to drink well young.

Owned entirely by Albert Bichot, this vineyard produces wines with power and texture. The result is extremely impressive in 2010, showing layer upon layer of sweet, refreshing flavours and none of the occasional Corton coarseness. The wine combines elegance with ripeness and concentration.

 

Philippe notes that ‘there was not such a big difference between the Aloxe and the Corton in 2009, but there is a big difference in 2010!.
