Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru La Toppe au Vert presents a floral bouquet on the nose in addition to flavors of red fruits such as redcurrants and Morello cherries, as well as hints of clove. In the mouth, this wine is characterized by its intensity, energy and complexity. It can be kept for many years.
“A gentle application of wood sets off aromas of dark currant, earth and sauvage hints that are riper than their 2013 counterparts. There is excellent richness and plenty of volume to the mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that brim with palate coating dry extract, all wrapped in a firm but not especially rustic or austere finish. This is built to age and it will need at least 5 or so years but 8 to 10 would be better.” –Burghound
