Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
