Le Corton Grand Cru, Bouchard Père et Fils, 2015

WF00524

New product

Spice and smoke aromas and flavors frame the wild cherry and berry fruit in this linear, intense red. There is a savage quality here, even to the tannins, which will need some time to be absorbed. The lengthy aftertaste evokes chalk and underbrush notes. Best from 2022 through 2042. 125 cases imported. (WS)
