Corton Grand Cru "Blanc" 2013, Comte Senard

I first tasted at this domaine in 1993 with the Rockefeller. We didn't get on tremendously well but they were very polite. Since then wine making has been hande from Philippe to his daughter. And the domaine charges for tastings under the guise of being a restaurant. I recommend the coq au vin which is actually made with coq. Phenomenal. Jurassic experience. Only ten producers make a white wine from the corton grand cru vieneyards. This 2013 from Domaine Senard starts on hay, white flowers, ripe lemon. Round, ripe and fresh. There's a lovely lemon sponge flavour. Rich with levity like a champagne socialist. Mineral. Could be a Puligny Folatieères. Scores 24-28/30 for a Corton bland grand cru.
