Tasting Notes

Colour

The color is intense and deep dark red.

Nose

Wide aromatic palette that takes us between fruity (raspberry, strawberry), mineral (graphite, charcoal) and floral (faded rose) notes.

Palate

The palate is just as complex, with a nice persistence of woody and spicy notes. The structure is worthy of the greatest wines of the Côte de Beaune.


Origin

The Corton vineyard is located north of the Côte de Beaune on the hill of Corton and extends over 3 municipalities: Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton, and Ladoix-Serrigny. The Climat "Les Renardes" is located in the middle of the hillside, on the edge of the village of Ladoix-Serrigny. Corton is the only red Grand Cru in the Côte de Beaune.

Vinification

Traditional vinification in thermos-regulated stainless steel vats on a 3 weeks period: Cold pre-fermentation maceration around 8 ° C. Pigeages and pumping over to extract colour and structure. Fermentation with a peak temperature around 30 ° C. Post-fermentation maceration at 25 ° C. Ageing between 8 to 16 months with malolactic fermentation to gain roundness. 70 à 80% de fût neuf.

    Soil

    Gently sloping reddish and stony soil, calcareous brown, rich in marl with a high potash content. It offers Pinot Noir its full development.
