Edmond Cornu & Fils – Les Valozières 2018 – Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru

The nose is gourmand, well-built and offers richness as well as a small power. It reveals notes of fleshy plum, fleshy/acidulous blackberry, small notes of crushed strawberry associated with small touches of violet, camphor, grey pepper, very discreet hints of cardamom and an imperceptible hint of vanilla pod (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, beautifully aerial, elegant and offers juiciness, a lot of gourmandize, minerality, a small freshness and a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy plum, crushed cassis, small notes of violet associated with touches of small crushed blue fruits, liquorice, cardamom as well as fine hints of racy minerality, chocolate, an imperceptible hint of coffee and vanilla. Good length. Tannins are well-built and very finely chewy.
