2005 Dominique Laurent Corton Vieilles Vignes Blanc - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton Grand Cru (12/4/2014)
Don’t recall ever having a Laurent white but I have to say this was splendid. There was a touch of mineral reduction to the aroma that blew off to reveal honeysuckle, aniseed and ripe orchard fruit aromas. In the mouth it started off like an exotic Montrachet with layers of sappy peach fruit, custard apple and butter but it tightened through the palate with a big squeeze of lemon. It is a wine of great richness and power yet it is by no means heavy and it has line and underlying minerality.
