Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The area of production is located on the hill of Corton, on a mid slope facing East, above the villages of Aloxe Corton and Ladoix Serrigny.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure. Aging in oak casks during 16 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Floral fragrances mixed with notes of red and black fruit. Powerful, ample. Concentrated and complex with a broad-shouldered structure. Well-shaped tannins. Long and complex aftertaste.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled and all cheeses, especially the local specialties like Epoisses or Citeaux.
