Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Prieur 2007 Corton Bressandes displays ripe cherry, leather, and resinous, caramelized oak notes. At 13.5% natural alcohol by one measure the ripest wine of its collection, this certainly pours on rich, slightly stewed fruit and introduces some sense of stony as well as saline mineral character in its finish. But I also find a bit of extraneous oakiness and slightly rough patch that concerns me. Still, I'd say it is worth anticipating a positive reaction here to 3-5 years in bottle. I would just monitor the wine's evolution annually if I planned to cellar it.
