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.

A firm, linear red with ripe strawberries and raspberries and some hazelnuts and citrus rind. It’s medium-to full-bodied with lightly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Tight at the end. Drink after 2022.

Ample wood influence is present on the cool and pure essence of baked plum liqueur, earth and plenty of floral and spice nuances. There is excellent size, weight and power to the large-scaled but not ponderous flavors that are also shaped by very firm tannins on the beautifully long if slightly warm finale. This is very promising and should ultimately prove to be very long-lived.
