Appellation: CORTON Grand Cru Grape variety: Pinot Noir Surface area: 1.12 hectares Average age of vines: 35 years Exposure: East Colour: Red

Terroir

This cuvee comes from 4 parcels situated mid-slope and spread in homogenous fashion over the whole appellation. The soils are deep and made up in equal parts of limestone and clay, giving the wine lovely balance and great length on the palate. It is a terroir that is very representative of the appellation CORTON.

Tasting

Here, terroir expresses itself strongly but the wine remains elegant, although powerful. A lovely sensation of opulence and fullness, with a very persistent finish and enveloped in a tannic structure that is fine but quite present. Hints of forest floor aromas are found in it, from its earliest youth. With age, it moves towards wilder flavours.

Vintage

The year of balance through freshness. In other words, it was a cold winter, followed by a mild spring then a cool and slightly damp summer. The harvest was late and the mildness of September allowed the grapes to achieve an excellent maturity without losing acidity. As the crop was 40% below normal, it goes without saying that the wines achieve a rare level of intensity. The reds are well-coloured, rich and powerful and gifted with good acidity; they reflect their climats with sincerity. The whites are crystalline in structure and rich in aromas well typifying their appellation. In general, there is good keeping potential for both colours (5 to 15 years).
