Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013

Grand Cru 2013

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 2013 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in early October under a bright sunshine. Aging in oak during 13 months.

Tasting : Pale gold color. Fragrances of citrus blossom mixed with aromas of green apple and wet stone. Complex and concentrated. Tight texture with a very pure fruit. Well integrated acidity and subtle oak note. Generous and well-balanced finish. Score: 92 Burghound - June 2015

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