2015 Corton Renardes Grand Cru
100% Pinot Noir
The “Montagne de Corton” brings together the villages of Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses, between the Côte des Pierres (south of Côte de Nuits, where vineyards mingle with the Comblanchien stone quarries) and Savigny-lès-Beaune (north of the Côte de Beaune). The vineyards extend between 250 and 330 metres in altitude, forming an amphitheatre found nowhere else in the Côte.
Aged 18 months in French oak.

”The 2015 Corton-Renardes Grand Cru opens in the glass with a lovely bouquet of black raspberries, grilled squab, rose petals and spices. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with a deep, layered core, powdery structuring tannins and ripe acids, concluding with a long, youthfully chewy and delicately oak-inflected finish. This is a dramatic, gourmand Corton-Renardes that will reward bottle age.”
