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 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.
