Description

Nestled among the ancient vines in the lower reaches of the illustrious Corton mountain, basking in the gentle embrace of an eastward-facing slope, lies a vineyard graced with the wisdom of time and the gift of modest yields. Here, we encounter one of the most exceptional Grands Crus adorning this majestic hillside. The wines it yields are nothing short of magnificent, weaving together the robust vigor and commanding presence characteristic of the renowned Cortons, all the while delicately infusing them with finesse and an undeniable touch of elegance.

In essence, they stand as the quintessential embodiment of Burgundy's red Grands Crus. These wines, embodying the essence of patience and perfection, reward those who cellar them for 5 to 15 years with a symphony of flavors and aromas that continue to evolve and enchant.

Tasting Profile

Palate
Strong ruby garnet color, delicate water's edge, lightening towards the rim. On the nose, there's a malted undertone with dried fruit notes, subtle hints of raisins, and baked apple. On the palate, it is sweet and loosely textured, leaning more towards Southern Italy rather than Burgundy. Cooked fruit flavors, somewhat dry tannins, a typical victim of heat.
