2018 Corton Grand Cru Cuvée du Bourdon, Domaine Ponsot

This is a blend of three vineyards, with 20% Clos du Roi, 20% Perrières, and the rest Paulands. This is wild and herbal, with definition of fruit and very Côte de Beaune tannins. Dark and intense, there’s great depth here.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Corton Grand Cru Cuvée du Bourdon is the usual blend of some 60% Les Paulands, 20% Les Perrières and 20% Clos du Roi, and Alexandre Abel told me that he limited the fermentation temperature to a maximum of 30 degrees Celsius to control extraction. Wafting from the glass with notions of cherries, raspberries, potpourri, spices and forest floor, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, with real energy and excellent structural refinement.
