One for lovers of Corton with some muscularity, this sturdy red hails from two parcels in the Grand Cru - the Drouhins pulled out a third in Bressandes - and has plenty of fruit sweetness to soften the tannic grip. Floral top notes lead you into a palate with juicy plum and mulberry fruit and enough acidity to bring freshness to the finish.
