Vineyard : the parcels come from the hill of Corton, located on the North part of Côte de Beaune, bordering the Côte de Nuits. Three different parcels contribute to the wine, with 40 % coming from Aloxe Corton with South exposure, 30 % from Ladoix Serigny with East exposure and 30% from Pernand Vergelesses with West exposure. That creates a very balanced wine with the precise definition of what a Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru is. 

 

• Soil type : hard limestone and marl. 

 

• Varietal: 100% Chardonnay – Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).  The vines are 50 years old. 

 

• Winemaking : the grapes are harvested by hand and sorted when picking. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (30% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts during 18 months. During this time, we did no stirring of the lees in the barrels. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar (“root” day for the wines for ageing).  

 

• Tasting notes : Rich wine with body and perfection. A balance between strength and mineral character, flint, vegetal notes, lime and even structure. An incredible length and precision.  

 

• To serve with: lobster, seafood, white meat like Bresse chicken, foie gras, fish and cheese.  

 

• Serving temperature: 14-16 °C  

 

• One of the most iconic wines of our region regarding the expression of mineral character combined with power. A wine to pair with food in order to discover its complexity and life. Important point, it’s a grand cru with a reasonable price.
