Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru
2011
2010

This Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru was produced from Pinot Noir vines with an age of nearly 85 years, sited in limestone, marl and clay soils in the excellent Les Paulands sector, almost due north of the ancient village of Aloxe-Corton. Bottled after 17 months in barrel, this is a wine of real fruit character, minerality and structure. A delicious wine to drink by itself or an ideal accompaniment to roast leg of lamb, grouse, pheasant or oxtail.
