The Grand Crus of Corton, Dubreuil-Fontaine Dinner at Lume‏


Corton Grand Cru Header

Great wines at incredible prices

 

The string of small vintages and increased demand for top end Burgundy has pushed prices for many wines through the roof.

 

The big names of the Cote d'Or have risen substantially in the last few years and show no signs of abating.

 

At the same time we have seen incredible changes in Aloxe-Corton and Nuits-St-Georges. The once-tough, slightly rustic wines of these villages have been replaced by wines of considerable finesse and complexity. Gone are the tough tannins, in with vibrant fruit and silky palates that provide much more drinking pleasure in the first decade after bottling.

 

Domaine Latour Corton Label 1999 Today, we concentrate on the Grand Crus of Corton. Nowhere in Burgundy has seen such a meteoric rise in quality over the last decade. And the good news is, for the moment at least, prices have not risen in line with the quality.

 

Over the last week I have enjoyed super Corton Grand Crus from Dubreuil-Fontaine, Maillard and Senard and a not-to-be-missed 2011 Corton-Charlemagne from Castagnier.

 

All of these wines are under $200 a bottle, many much closer to the $100 mark.

If you love Grand Cru Burgundy you really should take a look at what we have available before it sells out. These are wine to drink now and cellar. One thing is for sure - prices will rise as the world discovers the "New Corton".
