2013 Corton Renardes Grand Cru

BLEND | 100% Pinot Noir

VINEYARDS | 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.

WINEMAKING | 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).
