Wine Joseph Drouhin, Corton Grand Cru, 1995
Reviews of purchase Joseph Drouhin, Corton Grand Cru, 1995
The wine is a deep brick red color.
The taste of the wine is excellent structured, without harshness, with a velvety texture and hints of candied fruit. The tannins, a bit stronger in the beginning, eventually softened, but the wine retains a certain hardness. The finish is very long, persistent and complex.
Beautiful, powerful aroma of the wine shows tones of spices, undergrowth, the nuances of licorice and candied fruit.
The wine will be the perfect pair with red meat, game and hard cheeses.
