2015 Edmond Cornu Ladoix "Les Carrières"
/ Single Bottle
BH 89-92 Points (♥ = outstanding): A pungent nose presently consists of wood and reduction. On the plus side though there is a lovely sense of freshness and underlying tension to the slightly more refined medium weight flavors, thanks primarily to the relatively fine-grained tannins that also shape the more obviously mineral-driven and firmer finish where once again hints of bitter cherry and rusticity can be found. This offers terrific quality for a Ladoix villages and is high recommended provided you have the intention of cellaring it for at least a few years.
