Corton Grand Cru "Blanc" 2007, Comte Senard


The very charming chap in the Comte Senard tasting room positioned this as evidence of how the Corton Blanc evolves in a way that is different from a Puligny or Meursault. That may be the case but  if 10 years of maturation means a manzanilla style then it's tough to give a thumbs up. This 2007 Corton grand cru Blanc starts on dried chanterelles and hazelnuts. A touch of sherry. Dry meadow grass and hay. More interesting on the palate, lemon and dried orange. Salty finish. Allegedly similar to a vin de Jura. Not a good comparison. Interesting but for the price not worth buying.
