Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 91
Decanter
A complex nose of red and black fruit, liquorice, coniferous forest floor and roast squab is followed by a powerful, structured palate with nice depth, concentration and freshness. This will need some time in the cellar to mellow.
BH 91
Burghound.com
Wood and menthol aromas all but dominate the underlying dark berry fruit and pungently earthy scents. This is a big and impressively powerful Aloxe villages with excellent mid-palate density to the intense medium weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the lingering finale. This is not a wine of finesse but then again that's not why one buys Aloxe; recommended provided you have the patience to cellar it for at least a few years first.

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.
