Product Details

Burghound: “(from Le Rognet et Corton; 100% new wood). Here the pungent nose presently consists of wood and reduction aromas. Otherwise there is outstanding volume to the powerful and intense big-bodied flavors that excude a subtle minerality on the equally clean but bone dry finale where the wood Telegraphed by the nose reappears. This should benefit from a few years of cellaring first and reward 6 to 8.” 90-93/100

Wine Advocate (Neal Martin): “The 2014 Corton Grand Cru Blanc is matured in 100% new French oak with no bâtonnage. It carries the new oak nicely on the nose so that you would not be able to discern that it was entirely in new wood. There are touches of orange blossom and tropical tones coming through. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, nicely balanced with a detailed, quite minerally finish that completes what I suspect could be one of the best Corton Blanc wines that Anne Parent has produced.” 92-94/100

The Burgundy Report: “Tight nose.Ooohh… That’s intense, but beautifully textured, a hint of salinity, more than a hint of minerality. Wide, joyous midpalate And finishing flavour, edged with a hint of finishing tannin. Excellent this vintage!”

Michael Apstein: “White Corton is a rarity, since most producers label it Corton Charlemagne. Indeed, Anne Parent, who runs the eponymous domaine with her sister Catherine, says she legally label hers as Corton-Charlemagne, but since it comes from the east-facing portion of the hill in the Ladoix-Serrigny Commune, she prefers to label it simply…Corton. Domaine Parent, best known for their stellar wines from Pommard where they are based, also makes a stunning white Corton, in part because Anne Parent does not cut corners. For exemple, when she replants a vineyard she lets the ground lie fallow for four to five years so that, as she says, “the soil can rejuvenate itself.” And then she notes, “You need 10 years for vines to become settled, before they produce high-quality fruit.” No wonder her 2014 Corton sings. It conveys a beguiling combination of floral notes, pineapple-like spice and a seemingly endless vibrancy, which amplifies all of the compnents. Befitting a Grand Cru Burgundy, I’d put it in the cellar for a decade – if you can keep your hands off it.” 96/100
