The 2008 vintage year is called miraculous and the 2008 Corton Grand Cru Bressandes from Domaine de la Pousse d'Or does not bend the rules. Contrasted climatic conditions resulted in a late yet quick bud break and a slow ripening of the grapes. That year red wines were produced in low amounts because of the severe selection of the bays. The red wines are characterised by a good freshness and a crispy palate. The 2008 Corton Grand Cru Bressandes from Domaine de la Pousse d'Or is pure Pinot Noir wine aged on lees in oak barrels (30% new barrels) for 18 months. The deep garnet colour gives way to a beautiful aromatic finesse shared between black fruits and a nice wood. On the palate thick tannins echoe these aromas.
