Background
Just like its neighbour, the illustrious Corton Grand Cru Monopole "Clos des Maréchaudes", this wine is also a “monopole” belonging to the Domaine du Pavillon estate. The soil here is brown limestone overlying scree, with a high proportion of clay. "En Mareschaut" is derived from the Old French term “maresche” (marsh). The lower parts of Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny were marshy due to their proximity to the Lauve spring. Major drainage work was undertaken to dry up the land and make it suitable for planting vines.
Tasting Notes
The nose of our Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru « Clos des Maréchaudes » features fruity aromas of blackberry, strawberry and notes of mild spices, tea and cocoa. Boasting extremely supple structure, this balanced wine has lovely, pleasing, velvety tannins. The finish is long and aromatic, reminiscent of the fruity aromas perceived on the nose.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Serve between 15 and 17°C (59°F - 63°F) This wine may be laid down for 5 to 7 years or more.
Food Matches
Try this wine with game, elaborate red meat dishes, and classic cheeses.
