    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Pousse d'Or 2008 Corton Bressandes displays deep, roasted meaty richness - very domesticated and clean rather than gamey - allied to dark cherry and plum tinged with their pits and crushed stone. Landanger opines that his Bressandes is more struck by their very recent bottling than are his three (at the time I tasted) already-bottled premier crus, but I found this broadly rich Corton notably fine-grained in tannin and savory. I'm inclined though to take his word for it that there is even more here than currently meets the palate. In any case, I suspect there is 12-15 year potential.
