Corton
Grand Cru 2014

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 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The red wines give off beautiful aromas of ripe red berries with a sappy texture. Aging in oak casks during 17 months.

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of black cherries and black plum, mixed with an array of spices. Powerful and concentrated. Complex with a tight texture. Well-shaped tannins. Long and complex aftertaste. Score : 90-93 - Burghound - April 2016 -

Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled and all cheeses, especially the local specialties like Epoisses or Citeaux.
