Summer of 2018 saw 50% less rainfall on average, fortunately winter and spring received plenty of rain to fill the water tables from which our older vines could get what they needed. As a side note, Burgundy cannot -by law irrigate its vineyards. This allows the roots of the vines to reach deeper into the earth to get their nutrients.
The end results of these climatic conditions gave our Pinot Noirs a deeper coloration and concentration of flavors but still fresh due to a good level of acidity.
Harvest at the Domain started early on Sept 3rd!
With a beautiful complexity, this grand cru with roundness and finesse is characterized by aromas of liquorice and ripe cherries. Undoubtedly the most feminine of the Grands Crus of the hill of Corton.
