Wine information

The Chardonnay comes to 80 % from the Grand Cru vineyard Corton-Bressandes, to 15 % from Corton Chaumes and to 5 % from Corton Renardes. Thus, this Chardonnay comes from sites that were actually reserved for Pinot noir. These sites are characterized by bajocium and Oxford limestone with pebbles, clay and a high iron content.

Wow, this is a fine and precise opener! The Corton shows directly its terroir and also its specificity. The white from red soils is a wine as elegant as it is powerful, a guy in a tailor-made suit with fine creamy stone fruit notes, red berries, smoky notes and an underlying spice and power that brings so much tension to the wine as if it were about to erupt. With air, the wine becomes increasingly cool, herbaceous and stony, as if slowly shedding its dress of fruit and berries.


Both juicy and crystalline textures, a light tannin and a bubbling minerality provide complexity, depth and vibrancy to this Corton. At first the Chardonnay is creamy and buttery, building like a genie out of the bottle, becoming more full-bodied and showing muscle. Then the acid attacks start and the chalky chalky notes penetrate the fruit and creaminess. With force the Corton to the palate, is still wild and impetuous, but will find and develop more and more over the years. This is great, impressive stuff!
