Meo Camuzet Corton Perrieres 2012
France >Burgundy >Aloxe Corton
(AG=92-94) The 2012 Corton Perrieres pulses with pure energy and brilliance. Dark red stone fruits, crushed rocks, spices and wild flowers are some of the many notes that meld together in the glass. Though medium in body, the 2012 finishes with substantial understated power and intensity. I wouldn't expect the 2012 to drink at its finest anytime soon. (AM=91-93) Here the wood is more discreet if not invisible as it sets off the earthy and quite somber mix of red and dark currant, spice and distinctly sauvage nuances. There is good energy and precision to the focused, intense and overtly mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a saline, moderately austere and impressively persistent finish. (RP=90-92) New since 2009, the 2012 Corton-Perrieres Grand Cru comes from a vineyard that Jean-Nicolas confessed needed a lot of work when they took over. It has a relatively light nose compared to some of the other grand crus tasted. The palate is clean and pure on the entry with supple red cherry and cranberry fruit, although it needs to muster just a little more complexity on the minerally finish. This is one to watch.
