The 2015 Corton-Renardes Grand Cru from Domaine Leroy offers up a pretty nose of red cherry, raspberry, lapsang tea and rose hip, with none of the more feral aromas that sometimes seem to earn this climat its soubriquet. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and concentrated, built around a chalky chassis of tannin and a bright, vertical line of acidity. This will need some time in the cellar, but it should emerge as a beautifully elegant example of Corton.
