Corton Grand Cru Les Bressandes Chandon de Brailles 2005 

100% Pinot Noir

92 points from Allen Meadows, who writes: "As it often is, the nose is more elegant though more reserved with refined red pinot fruit and obvious minerality that continues onto the sweet, rich, precise and firm flavors that possess good vibrancy and excellent finishing punch and length. This is very firmly structured and crafted in an understated, "built to age" style." (Burghound, 04/07)

The Bressandes is the most powerful of the Cortons, a wine of depth and presence. Deeply coloured for a Chandon de Briailles wine, with a nose of wild fruits when young, it slowly develops a marvellous complexity of truffle and sous-bois aromas.

Corton is an Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) and Grand Cruvineyard for red and white wine in Côte de Beaune subregion of Burgundy. It is located on a hill shared between the three villages of Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix in the Côte deBeaune, Burgundy. The appellation covers the lower parts of the Corton hill and includes several subordinate vineyard names, or climats, within the AOC. Due to the size of the AOC and the variability of these climats, it is the rule rather than the exception that the name of the climat is indicated together with that of the Corton AOC, leading to designations such as Corton Clos du Roi and Corton Les Bressandes. Corton is somewhat unique in this aspect, since it is very seldom to indicate climat for other Grand Cru appellations in Côte d'Or. The AOC was created in 1937.

The Corton appellation itself is the Côte de Beaune's only Grand Cru appellation for red wine, and is the largest Grand Cru of Burgundy.
