The 2021 Maison Evenstad, Corton Grand Cru Les Renardes Pinot Noir opens with a nose reminiscent of cranberry, graphite, and slatey minerality, accompanied by hints of tart cherry pie. The tannins are assertive, showcasing impressive concentration and promising exceptional ageability due to its vibrant acidity. On the palate, notes of black pepper, sage leaf, and thyme unfold, interwoven with nuances of rosemary, bread crumbs, and cassoulet, displaying profound layers and complexity. The finish is structured and lingering, complemented by echoes of cherry danish and a savory herbaceousness reminiscent of cooler vintages, underlined by youthful tannins that suggest a graceful evolution over the next 10-15 years.
