Bouchard Pere & Fils Le Corton Grand cru 2012

Intense bouquet with aromas of red and black fruit, spices, and a touch of oak.
Rich and structured on the palate, this wine needs a bit of patience in order to reveal its raciness
and great distinction. Excellent ageing potential.

Bouchard Pere & Fils Le Corton Grand cru 2012

The first traces of vineyards at Aloxe-Corton date back to the 2nd. Century B.C.
Later, Le Corton was to be the favourite wine of Charlemagne. In the 19th century,
the writer, Guy de Maupassant contributed to its reputation by calling it the "ROI des
bons vivants" in his famous novel "Bel Ami". Corton is the only red Grand Cru on the
Côte de Beaune and the only Grand Cru on the Côte d'Or to be divided into "sous climats". "Le Corton" is the historic vineyard which gave the name to the Corton
appellation.
