Corton Vergennes
Grand Cru 2000

Rebsorte : Chardonnay

Boden : Clay and limestone covered with stone

Lage : A very small single vineyard shared between Chanson and the Hospices de Beaune on a hump of the hill of Corton. The vineyard used to belong to the Count of Vergennes, who was counselor to Louis XVI and signatory for the Treaty of Independence with the United States of America.

Der Jahrgang 2000 : After a quick bud burst, followed by an early flowering period (beginning of June), some rain and cool temperatures in July slowed down the ripening of the grapes. Good weather at the end of the summer and a prolonged hot period in early September, which ensured good concentration of the juice.

Verkostung : Beautiful gold colour. Intense aromas of exotic fruit and citrus fruit (grapefruit) mixed with grilled almond and enhanced by an elegant vanilla note. Elegant, generous, well-balanced and well-structured. A lot of harmony and a beautiful aromatic complexity Outstanding finish.

Servierempfehlung : “Foie gras”, fish in a creamy sauce, crayfish. Particularly great with a selection of French cheeses.
