Domaine Dubreuil Fontaine Aloxe Corton Les Vercots 2019
|France, Burgundy, Cote d'Or
|Domaine Dubreuil Fontaine
The 2019 Aloxe-Corton Les Vercots 1er Cru has a tight, backward bouquet initially, before opening to offer intense black cherries, cassis and violet aromas. Good definition here compared to some of the Pernand-Vergelesses cuvées. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, and quite effervescent thanks to veins of blood orange and marmalade notes toward the finish. This is unashamedly opulent in style but manages to retain plenty of freshness.
