Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Domaine Parent Corton-Renardes Grand Cru is an intense garnet-red and brilliant color. The nose is dense and complex with black fruits and wood mushroom aromas. The mouth is powerful, crunchy and balanced with fine and elegant tannins that linger.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Corton les Renardes Grand Cru includes 50% whole-cluster fruit and is aged in 80% new French oak. This was surly and introspective on the nose, some vanillary oak waiting to be assimilated into the dusky black fruit. The palate is well balanced with rounded tannin, good structure and impressive density. Perhaps by comparison I prefer the detail exhibited by Anne Parent’s best Pommard premier crus, although the matière suggests that this will have aging potential.

Barrel Sample: (90-92)

Domaine Parent, France
Domaine Parent, located in Pommard, in the heart of Côte d’Or, is today run by Anne Parent and her sister Catherine Fages-Parent, representing the 12th generation, and perpetuating a family tradition dating back to the 17th century. In 1787, Etienne Parent had friendly and professional connections with Thomas Jefferson who was to become the 3rd President of the United States. He then became a forerunner of Burgundy wine exportations across the Atlantic. At the beginning of 19th century, Claude Parent left Volnay, the family cradle, to settle in Pommard and to build Domaine Parent in 1803. In 1947, Jacques Parent, then 19 years old, began working with his father Maxime. He then took over the management of the Domaine in 1953, and triggered an innovative impetus. Indeed, Domaine Parent was one of the first estates of Côte d’Or which sold all its production in bottles, in France on the best tables of French gastronomy, and overseas as well. Jacques Parent’s will to work and ensure the continued existence of this family property allowed him to pass on the family estate calmly to his two daughters Anne and Catherine in 1998.

Aloxe-Corton Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

Prevailing over the charming village of Aloxe, the hill of Corton actually commands the entire appellation. Corton is the only Grand Cru for Pinot Noir in the entire Côte de Beaune. Its Grand Crus red wines can be described simply as “Corton” or Corton hyphenated with other names. These vineyards cover the southeast face of the hill of Corton where soils are rich in red chalk, clay and marl.

Dense and austere when young, the best Corton Pinot Noir will peak in complexity and flavor after about a decade, offering some of the best rewards in cellaring among Côte de Beaune reds. Pommard and Volnay offer similar potential.

The great whites of the village are made within Corton-Charlemagne, a cooler, narrow band of vineyards at the top of the hill that descends west towards the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. Here the thin and white stony soils produce Chardonnay of exceptional character, power and finesse. A minimum of five years in bottle is suggested but some can be amazing long after. Fully half of Aloxe-Corton is considered Grand Cru.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
