$540.50 inc. GST
This Grand Cru appellation exists only in white and covers a surface area of 71.87 ha of which 48.57 ha of vines are located in Aloxe-Corton, 17.25 ha in Pernand-Vergelesses and 6.5 ha in Ladoix-Serrigny. The soil is clayey with marls at the upper part of the slope. 41 yr old vines.
With a beautiful pale yellow colour with white reflections, this wine reveals intense aromas of lemons, yellow fruits and spicy notes. The palate reveals a smooth, buttery texture and a nice salinity on the finish. Domaine notes.
Tank sample. Still-muted nose. Creamy texture and masses of lime fruit. Still embryonic. Lots more acidity than the Morgeot but no more body. Less opulent than Morgeot but it tastes as though it has the potential for considerable development. 17.5+ Jancis Robinson.
