    Cuvée presentation

    99% of the wine produced is red; the Corton appellation is the only red Côte de Beaune Grand Cru. The limestone-clay soil on the Corton hillside is rich in marl, and provides an exceptional terroir for producing great wines. Dense, closed and highly tannic when young, they have worried many a connoisseur. However, after waiting patiently for six or seven years, cellaring will bring out their marvellous aromas of red fruit, spices, liquorice and game, as well as an incredible richness. Nicely structured, they unveil a nice acidity and good persistency. Next to Pommard, Corton has, out of all the Côte de Beane wines, undoubtedly the best cellaring potential, which is between 20 to 40 years depending on the vintage.
