A rare opportunity to taste a Grand Cru Pinot Noir after years of aging — without the wait! Bressandes comes from the east side of Corton Hill, and is intense in both color and flavor, with a stout yet harmonious body. Drink now, or wait a few more years! Note: older vintages can be fragile. See our recommendations for how to open and serve older wines.

  • A complex nose with nutmeg, sweet spice, cedar, oak, black truffles, earth, and a little barnyard. Also a very faint iodine aroma, floral notes, woodsy scents and nutty suggestions. Substantial body. Tart, with bright, concentrated, red fruit flavors as well as dark, brambly fruit and licorice. Lively acidity nicely complements a chewy, viscous mouthfeel. Nuts, wet earth, spice, and herbal notes. Sinewy tannins support an ample yet elegant structure. Good balance. Lengthy finish. Still developing. Likely to drink well through around 2019. Recommended for people who like their wines full-flavored and robust.

    Food pairing: Hearty tomato-based pasta dishes or game meats.
