Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2007

Grand Cru 2007

Grape Variety : Chardonnay

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : In the very heart of the appellation, on the upper part of the hill of Corton above the villages of Pernand Vergelesses and Aloxe Corton

The Vintage 2007 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery with regular batonnage (stirring of the lees in the barrel) have produced very pure white wines well-balanced with fantastic acidity. Aging in oak

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Very pure floral fragrances (acacia) mixed with aromas of citrus fruit and vanilla enhanced by a beautiful minerality. Powerful and generous. Dense and well-structured. Very pure fruit supported by a a good acidity and a well-integrated minerality. Long aftertaste.

Food pairing : Seafood, foie gras, fish in a creamy sauce, crayfish. Particularly great with a selection of French cheeses.
