(Bouchard Père et Fils Le Corton) Deep ruby colour, this wine looks amazingly youthful, you could believe it to be a 97 or even a 98. The nose is a powerful blend of higher black cherry & plum fruit, coming down to more savoury, meaty aromas. The palate is incredibly tannic still, more reminiscent of younger Bordeaux than aging Burgundy. The acidity is still good whilst retaining intense 'stone fruit'. There is no primary fruit left, but this wine is nowhere near maturity. I found this hard to like (unlike the 1992) and I'd say wait at least another 3 to 4 years before returning. Someone once said that the greatest Cortons are tough and powerful, this is both of those things but I'm not sure whether that makes it great !
