Proclaimed Grand Cru in 1937, the vineyard of Corton-Charlemagne covers the villages of Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses, and Ladoix-Serrigny.
Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016 is a vibrant and refined white wine.Its clear lemon colour hides a very intense nose of white flowers, lemon, pear and white peaches, lined with notes of fresh mushrooms and chalky minerality. On the palate, the same flavours are expressed, concentrated and multi-layered yet elegant and well defined. The finish is long, with a lingering minerality expressive of this unique terroir.
At the meeting point of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, Corton-Charlemagne is the incarnation of the perfect synthesis between a terroir and a grape variety. Occupying a part of the steep slopes of the Hill of Corton, this Grand Cru benefits from a terroir particularly favourable to grand white wines.
The juice dedicated to the Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2016 is placed into French oak barrels where it undergoes both fermentation and aging. The wine isn’t filtered, nor racked during these processes, which allows it to keep its lees. These natural deposits bring complexity and depth while enhancing the freshness of the wine.
