TN: 1980 Domaine Michel Voarick Corton-Languettes

Didn’t matter how much I tried, I couldn’t spin the capsule. Not left or right handed, not clockwise or anti-clockwise. The wine was very fresh however.

  • 1980 Domaine Michel Voarick Corton-Languettes - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton Grand Cru (6/8/2024)
    Very savoury. The nose shows some pine needle sap, smoked meats, chestnut and iron and earth. The palate is compact, intense and linear. It is a little skinny through the mid and has strong grip at the tail. There's some balsamic lift from a touch of V.A.

Thanks, I thought that I must be the only punter whose old burgundies don’t have spinning capsules!

I had no great luck with Voarick, both a 1978 Corton Renards and a 1979 Romanee St Vivant were volatile and quite oxidized (7 to 5 years ago)
