Corton Charlemagne is powerful, rich and mineral with an intense flavour of fruits and flowers and spicy aromas of pepper and cinnamon.
The Corton Charlemagne G rand Cru appellation is shared by the two villages of Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses in the Northern part of the Côte de Beaune.
The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.
The fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which they are aged in barrel for 18 months.
