Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Winemaker:
Rich wine that is expressed in time with mineral flavors. Notes mineral, flint, vegetal notes, lime, pineapple.

Food Pairing: Bresse chicken, foie gras, salmon with sorrel.

Aging:
Aging on fine lies. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("root” day for the wines for ageing).

Vineyard:
The vines where the grapes comes from, are located on Pernand Vergelesses, Aloxe Corton and Ladoix Serrigny Villages, northern Côte de Beaune.

Soil : Clay and limestone, south and southeast exposure.

Winemaking:
100% Chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches). - 50 years old

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (30% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts during 18 months.

Ratings & Reviews

92-94 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"(always from the same parcel in the heart of Aloxe-Corton): Bright, light yellow. Aromas of ripe yellow fruits and spices, with a touch of reduction that Germain says is from the wood. Riper and thicker than the basic Corton-Charlemagne but also very dry, even austere, and much more dominated by minerality. A strong flavor of liquid stone is complicated by lemon drop and saline nuances. Finishes chewy and long, with a tactile dusty minerality. This youthfully unforthcoming wine will need at least several years of bottle aging upon release." - Stephen Tanzer (Sep 2016)
