Location

Appellation: ALOXE-CORTON Premier Cru Les Valozières Grape variety: Pinot Noir Surface area: 0.28 hectare Planting date for vines: 1987 Exposure: East Colour: Red

Terroir

A Premier Cru Aloxe-Corton topographically well placed, beneath the Corton Bressandes and next to the Corton Paulands, both Grands Crus. The soil is clayey at the surface and pebbly limestone deeper down, quite uneven, and this makes for a terroir out of the ordinary. Facing east, just below mid-slope, it provides early ripening conditions.

Tasting

This wine has wild and complex aromas very typical of its terroir. It is a full-bodied and powerful wine. A wine for laying down, it can be kept a good ten years.

Vintage

A precocious spring led to an early growing cycle. Unfortunately a cold snap set upon the flowering, which took away hopes of good yields. Vines were then hit by hail on the 28th of June the storm fell from Meursault, corton, lowering yet again the quantity of grapes. We harvested from the 18th to 26th september, with half the normal crop though picking at perfect ripeness. The reds have a great aromatic complexity and silky tannins, whites have freshness and a density. The wines are tasting very well at the moment.
