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 no doubt exceptional vintage is in the making. The summer was hot with wet passages abundant in August. We harvest from 1 to 12 September a perfect maturity and in a perfect state of health. Chardonnay are already very expressive, with lovely notes of summer fruits, balanced by an impressive crispness and richness in the mouth. Pinot Noir are showing some intense, bright colors, vintage gourmet with notes of red berries, the tannins are silky and rounded will reveal its full splendor in years to come.
