France — Burgundy • $66.95 • 90/100

This is from the 1er Cru vineyard “Les Vergelesses”, just steps down the valley from the Grand Cru vineyard Le Charlemagne of Aloxe-Corton. The wine is medium cherry-red, with subtle floral notes leading into aromas of red cherries, raspberries and blackberries, and undertones of spice, vanilla, and oaky resin. The wine is dry, with firm acidity and pronounced, grippy tannins. The core of red fruit is certainly well-defined, but the resinous oaky undertones are still edgy, and the tannic structure requires significant cellar time to bring the wine to optimal drinking — probably three to five years. Decant if drinking over the shorter term. • Tasted 2017-02-18 • LCBO id#227199 • Find it at your nearest LCBOJOHN HANNA & SONS LIMITED (Agent)
