Wine:The 2020 Red Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Vercots pushes all the markers to the limit! In this outstanding vintage, it reveals itself as ripe and concentrated, deeply rooted in the pinot noir character, reminiscent of cherry juice, with an aging process that is still understandably dominant at this young stage. The palate is dense and tannic, with an impressive structure that fully embraces the stature of a 1er Cru. It's a wine meant for aging, and it would be wise to wait another two years. However, its freshness, full-bodied and fruity profile ensure confidence for enjoyment over six to eight years. Rated 94/100 by the Selection Committee.
