Corton Grand Cru 2011

Grand Cru 2011

Grape Variety : Pinot Noir

Soil : Clay and limestone

Site : The area of production is located on the hill of Corton, on a mid slope facing East, above the villages of Aloxe Corton and Ladoix Serrigny.

The Vintage 2011 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals. It gave way early September to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir. Aging in oak during 16 months

Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Floral fragrances mixed with notes of red and black fruit on a hint of liquorice. Powerful, ample. Concentrated and complex with a broad-shouldered structure. Very pure fruit. Well-shaped tannins. Long and complex aftertaste.

Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled and all cheeses, especially the local specialties like Epoisses or Citeaux.
