Ratings : Robert Parker 93-94/100, RVF 17/20, Bettane & Desseauve 17/20
« The Prieur 2006 Corton Bressandes – while picked first – hit the highest level of natural alcohol at this address for the vintage, nearly 13.5%. Blackberry, lingonberry, mint, iodine, black tea, and hints of Demararra brown sugar combine for a winsome nose. Superb concentration of bitter-sweet fruits, herbs, pepper, and mineral shadings inform an expansive vividly juicy and primary-fruited, yet also palpably dense and firm palate. The staining and invigorating intensity of finish here by no means precluded lift and sheer refreshment. Plan on giving it a few years before revisiting this beauty; then on following it at least through the teens of this century. » (Wine Advocate 2009 - Robert Parker) Dive into the teenage of an extraordinary wine !

Wine rated (guide 2009) : 17/20 (Vin de référence)
Vineyard rated (guide 2018) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About the vineyard : L’enthousiasme et la détermination que déploie Édouard Labruyère afin de positionner ce domaine au rang de ses grands crus sont notables. Les efforts sont évidents dans le vignoble, conduit depuis 1997 de façon biologique, en cave, où foudres et demi-muids ont fait leur apparition depuis 2012, et de façon essentielle, dans le verre. Avec sa palette exceptionnelle de grands crus parmi 22 hectares de vignobles, dont 17 hectares en côte de Beaune et une représentation exclusive de grands crus en côte de Nuits, ce domaine possède tous les attributs pour rejoindre l’élite des domaines bourguignons.

Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Le Corton Bressande 2006 de Prieur - même vendangé en premier - atteint le plus haut niveau d'alcool naturel du domaine dans ce millésime, presque 13.5%. Mûre, cranberry, menthe, iode, thé et une pointe de sucre brun se combinent dans un nez séduisant. Une superbe concentration de fruits aigres-doux, d'herbes, de poivre et de notes minérales constitue cette bouche ample, fruitée, juteuse mais aussi palpablement dense et ferme. L'intensité tonifiante et revigorante de la finale n'empêche nullement son envol.
