Location

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

A late wet spring with rain during flowering. A high level of disease pressure, predominantly from downy mildew that was well managed by the domaine. Grapes reached optimum ripeness thanks to their healthy foliage. Vine yields were low due to the millerandage from the cold and wet flowering. Half the normal crop was picked, starting on september 20th with a good latter part of the saison. Grapes had an exceptional quality and in turn made extremely balanced, intense and vibrant wines. Great potential for ageing reds and whites.
