As a young wine, this very delicate Aloxe-Corton reveals quite pronounced aromas characteristic of its age. However, after a dozen years of cellaring, it will open up and deliver classy and complex mild spice, dark berry and dried flower notes. This is a fine wine renowned for its admirable finesse and we therefore recommend cellaring it for several years.

Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Grandes Lollières Maillard et Fils (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Champignon à la normande, Tourte à la viande, Potage au cresson.

    Information about domain Maillard et Fils

    The Maillard family has been part of Burgundy’s viticultural scene since 1766. In 1952, Daniel Maillard, father to Pascal, decided to dedicate himself to this career, concentrating on enlarging the domain and growing cuvées in a way that respects the terroir and the soil. The domain has gone from 2 hectares to 19, shared across the areas of Aloxe-Corton, Pommard, Beaune, Ladoix-Serrigny, Chorey-les-Beaune, Meursault, Volnay, and Savigny-les-Beaune. In the vines and the winery alike, the methods are traditional, and all the cuvées are classed as grand cru in the regional appellation. They are worked meticulously, from the selection of the grapes to the vinification and the maturation in 228-litre oak barrels. If, one day, you have a chance to visit, don’t miss out on going down into the cellar where a magnificent well serves as a tasting table. Overall, this one is a Burgundian bright spark still at pleasing prices.
