Available for:
Intense bouquet with aromas of red and black fruit, spices and a touch a oak. Rich and structured on the palate, this wine needs a bit of patience in order to reveal its raciness and great distinction. Excellent ageing potential. Pair with venison, game birds, full-flavoured cheeses.

The 2018 Le Corton Grand Cru is a particular success, revealing lovely aromas of orange rind, peonies, wild berries, grilled game and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegant and precise, with good concentration and a long, mineral finish. Weber opted to ferment the old-vine fruit from this climat with some 20% whole cluster.

The 2018 Le Corton Grand Cru comes from an east-facing vineyard on clayey soils over limestone at 300m altitude. It has a fresh raspberry and cranberry bouquet with touches of rose petal and orange peel. The palate offers a pleasant bitter cherry note on the entry, which leads to a finely structured, gently grippy midpalate and a commendable, nicely proportioned finish that is fresh and quite long. This is certainly worth seeking out.
