This the first harvest of Thibaud having been able to acquire grapes from a vineyard which he has now secured on a long-lease. We went to find him picking the grapes during the 2019 harvest. The vines lie high on the Corton hill, facing due east to catch the first rays of the sun as it rises. The bunches were immaculately ripe and healthy, and gave 4 barrels (of which one was new), with 40% of the clusters being retained for fermentation. Colour is rich, ruby purple, aromas very fragrant. Palate showed substantial body, with mouth-coating fruitiness, rich tannins, good freshness and splendid length. This is a dramatic wine for drinking from the mid-2020s, then for at least a further decade.
