Winemaker Notes

At the North of the Côte de Beaune, the Mountain of Corton brings the villages of Aloxe-Corton, Pernand- Vergelesses and Ladoix-Serrigny. The vineyard ranges between 250 and 330 meters above sea level, forming an amphitheater without any other example in the Côte. The Corton Grand Cru is mainly red in 90 ha and can bear the name of its climate, numbering 25, such as Les Perrieres, Les Combes, Clos des Meix, Bressandes, Le Rognet, Les Renardes, Le Clos du King, ... Our House has 0.33 ha of this appellation.

The vines are grown in clay-limestone. They grapes are harvested by hand, undergo a cold maceration and undergo fermentation by natural yeasts and vatting for three weeks. The wine is aged in barrels (30% new) for 14 months. 1,500 bottles made.

95 Points, Decanter

Corton used to be sold at the same price as Richebourg in the 1890s, and when it's as good as this, you can understand why. Made with grapes from an east-facing, mid-slope site that was replanted in the 1990s, it's the best red in the current Champy line up: floral, intense and complex, with subtle, stony reduction, crafted 30% new wood and succulent red fruits.
