Maillard Pere & Fils Aloxe Corton Les Grandes Lolieres 2014
Save $15.00 (20%)
This wine is always concentrated, powerful, and trends towards black fruit with notes of coffee grounds, sweet spice, smoke, and roasted meat. In the terrific 2012 vintage, it's even more glorious than usual with an extra depth to the black raspberry and bing cherry fruit and a rich, velvety, texture. Even with all the ripeness, the bright acidity and fine minerality show through nicely on the long, ripe, finish. Very fine stuff. This is very impressive wine. Powerful and yet elegant, with great acidity to compliment a wide array of fruit and earth flavors. This is incredibly nice to drink well, but should continue to improve over the next 20 years.
