2013 Corton Renardes Grand Cru
100% Pinot Noir
The “Montagne de Corton” brings together the villages of Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses, between the Côte des Pierres (south of Côte de Nuits, where vineyards mingle with the Comblanchien stone quarries) and Savigny-lès-Beaune (north of the Côte de Beaune). The vineyards extend between 250 and 330 metres in altitude, forming an amphitheatre found nowhere else in the Côte.
Aged 18 months in French oak.
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES |
Red Cortons are deep crimson, a velvety dark red darkening to magenta. Full-bodied, the bouquet is expressed over fruity (blueberry, gooseberry, kirsch) or flowery (violet) accents, moving toward undergrowth, animals, leather, fur, pepper and liquorice. To the palate, it is powerful and full-bodied, structured, readily expressing its chewy tannins and its body. Firm and forthright, rich, it needs time to develop (4 to 12 years).
