Bouchard Pere et Fils Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Domaine 2018

An attractive story is told about this appellation: Charlemagne was very fond of the
wine from Le Corton which, at the time, was red. Towards the end of the Emperor's
life, the vineyards facing south were planted with chardonnay, to produce a white
wine to avoid staining his white beard. In 1909, Bouchard Père & Fils acquired 60%
of the prestigious vineyard at Le Corton (i.e. 6.93 hectares) which, has the rare
particularity of being planted with either pinot noir or chardonnay. Today,
Bouchard Père & Fils is the third most important owner in Corton-Charlemagne,
with 3.65 hectares.
