Michael Corso Selections II

One of America’s Top Boutique Importers, Con’t


One underlying and consistent aspect to Corso’s selections is their balance.  Each offer, as I discussed with Corso, offers the drinker pleasure without interference; you drink these wines and your senses are rewarded.  Corso’s response after I applauded his “style”?  “I like to eat”… “And I like to drink my wines with the food I like to eat…”  So simple, right?  Wine with food, balanced wine that doesn’t try to take center stage… Wow, what a forgotten concept…

“An Outstanding wine worth your serious attention that will impress and offer memorable drinking experiences.” CN
Drink: 2008 – 2012

“A new estate to this taster, Gilles Noblet was selected to Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list for 2008 for their Pouilly Fuisse, placing them in rarified company indeed.  This version offers a brilliant clarity to its color, suggesting years of drinking enjoyment ahead.  Delicious aromas entice the senses to include fresh drawn cream, decadent buttery nuances yet a freshness from the fruit that never allows for this wine to become flabby nor overbearing.  While the flavors and textures are deliciously decadent with a tease of cream and butter, this is refined and elegant at the same time.  A truly balanced and sophisticated white Burgundy.”
