Wine:Extremely delicate and elegant, the 2020 Red Corton Grand Cru Renardes expresses beautiful aromas of morello cherries and ripe cherries, with a noble woody imprint. The palate unfurls its dense, refined fruit with great consistency, backed by a tannic structure that will take all the time it needs to digest the woodiness. This is a fine, promising Corton Grand Cru, to be drunk over the next ten years. Rated 94/100 by our Committee!
Color:Beautifully intense red, carmine tones, brilliant.
Nose:Very pure, ripe fruit, cherries and morello cherries in abundance, fresh, noble oak present.
Palate:The palate is still marked by its ageing, but the texture of this delicate Pinot offers good volume, and it has the stamina to digest this woodiness. This is a very promising wine, so don't rush it, see it in 2 years, taste it over ten years.
Temperature:Serve between 14 and 16°C.
Food and wine pairing:An exceptional wine for special occasions and meals in good company! Veal sweetbreads with a simple black truffle jus, spit-roasted free-range poultry, beef cheek with pinot noir, pan-roasted Iberian pork chop.
Cellar aging:From now until 2033, and beyond for enthusiasts.
