The 2015 Bourgogne Cotes d'Auxerre Corps de Garde has a simple but pleasant black plum and raspberry coulis-scented nose, slightly confit in style. The palate is quite structured and grippy, more masculine than the the 2014s and with a brush of bell pepper toward the Loire-like finish. There is plenty of freshness here and I would be inclined to drink this young rather than with bottle age.
