The Aloxe-Corton appellation includes 13 Premiers Crus « climats ». Producing communes : Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix-Serrigny.
The reds are quite dark in colour, their shades varying from deep ruby through crimson to garnet. While young, the Aloxe-Corton’s aroma suggests a spring garden with small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). These intensify with age and evolve into peony and jasmine, preserved and brandied fruits, pistachio, prune, leather, truffle, mushroom and cinnamon. The deep soil begets a vigorous, full-bodied Pinot Noir, robust yet refined. Tender and fruity, this wine reaches its peak after 3 to 5 years in the cellar, revealing a firm and well-built body, richly chewy and with pleasing tannins. Aloxe-Corton whites are very rare.
