The ‘Colline’ (hill) of Cortons is a mosaic of styles and terroirs, made up of some 500 hectares of vines planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It comprises the villages of Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses, between the Côte des Pierres (to the south of the Côte de Nuits) and Savigny-Lès-Beaune (to the north of the Côte de Beaune). The vineyard lies at between 250 and 330 metres of altitude, forming an ampitheatre. As well as white Corton-Charlemagne, the hill produces Corton, “the wine of kings”, in the words of Camille Rodier. This grand cru is known mostly for its reds but there are also some rare specimens of whites. Corton is the biggest grand cru in Burgundy. White Cortons are refined and mineral. Few domains produce them, making these wines very sought after.

Vin de France Tarra di Sognu Clos Canarelli serve at a temperature of 17°C.

Information about domain Clos Canarelli

Clos Canarelli is one of Corsica's most emblematic domains thanks to the exceptional quality of its red and white wines but it is also one of the most innovative. Yves Canarelli has turned this family property into one of Corsica's most dynamic domains. It consists of 25 hectares spread out over the Figari appellation, one of France’s sunniest winemaking regions. The wind and the proximity to the mountains, however, allow the vines to produce chiselled and balanced wines. Yves takes a great interest in Ampelography, the study of grapevines, and the vines been cultivated biodynamically for several years. Yves has also managed to reintroduce some forgotten native grape varieties such as Bianco Gentile, Carcaghjolu and Minustellu, but the domain's achievements don't stop there. Since 2009, Canarelli has produced a red wine from some vines in the village of Orazi that date back to before the phylloxera crisis: the Cuvée Terra d'Orazi is vinified in clay amphorae. Finally, in 2016, the domain was responsible for resurrecting the first Clos de Bonifacio, a limestone rich parcel located above Corsica’s most southern town.
