2005 Pousse d'Or Corton Bressandes [wrinkled label]
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml

"The 2005 Corton Bressandes displays positively peachy, generically-ripe aromas (pushing 14% alcohol, which is the maximum here this vintage, eventually generating a faint bit of warmth) and with notes of cedar and a slightly funky gaminess behind that. It comes onto the palate with a certain roughness of tannin, though with persistently sweet fruit that takes on more Pinot-typical berry character and a broad, beefy richness. This big-boned, undeniably dense wine was only bottled for a week when I tasted which may account for some of its roughness and awkwardness, but I wonder also about the premature gaminess." - David Schildknecht, robertparker.com (Apr 29, 2007)
