Location

Appellation: CORTON Grand Cru Grape variety: Pinot Noir Surface area: 0.4 hectare Planting date for vines: 1974 and 1979 Exposure: East Colour: Red

Terroir

On the lower mid-slope, under the Corton Bressandes and beside the Corton Vergennes, it is shallow limestone terroir facing due east and offers early ripening.

Tasting

Much elegance is found in this wine which has the particularity of being suitable for tasting young. Said to be feminine for its finesse and freshness but also for its soft structure and velvety texture. Even if it is tempting to drink it in its 3rd or 4th year, it is preferable to keep it 8 to 15 years.

Vintage

Here was a vintage with very good maturity and lovely balance. The grape skins were fine and so would be the wines. Structure was forgotten in favour of softness and the wines let themselves be appreciated from their earliest age. Of moderate colour, the fruit explodes on the palate while tertiary aromas start to be noticed. They are delicious to drink now, both reds and whites. The Pernands Ile des Vergelesses and Cortons can however be kept for another 3 to 5 years.
