Background
Located in the "Les Languettes" climat on the south/southeast side of the Corton hill, the plot, which once belonged to the nuns of the Lieu-Dieu Abbey, was nicknamed “Vigne Dieu” by the old wine merchants and historians of Aloxe-Corton. A terroir renowned for its white wines whose power, due in part to its location on the hillside, can showcase finesse, delicacy and purity, on both an aromatic and a gustatory level.
Tasting Notes
Of infinite delicateness, the bouquet expresses buttery notes, aromas of baked apple, citrus fruit, pineapple, linden blossom, juniper, cinnamon and flint. Hints of honey are also frequent. The concentration, distinction and balance of this Chardonnay are pleasantly surprising. The finish is complex and intense.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Serve between 12°C and 14°C (53°F - 57°F) This wine will reach its potential after several years ageing. Cellar for 7 to 10 years or more.
Food Matches
Savour this Grand Cru with shellfish such as lobster, crayfish or crab, fish as well as certain white meats, poultry in cream and blue cheeses.
