The first traces of vineyards at Aloxe-Corton date back to the 2nd. Century B.C.. Later, Le Corton was to be the favorite wine of Charlemagne. In the 19th century, the writer, Guy de Maupassant contributed to its reputation by calling it the "roi des bons vivants" in his famous novel "Bel ami". Corton is the only red Grand Cru on the Côte de Beaune and the only Grand Cru on the Côte d'Or to be divided into "sousclimats". "Le Corton" is the historic vineyard which gave the name to the Corton appellation.

Intense bouquet with aromas of red and black fruit, spices and a touch a oak. Rich and structured on the palate, this wine needs a bit of patience in order to reveal its raciness and great distinction. Excellent ageing potential.

'Clear bright fresh purple. Light clay, red coloured on top of hard Corton limestone. Lively deep plums and some dark raspberry, very slinky and seductive with some black fruit on the palate, but retains a lively limestone feel to it. Very persistent.' - 92-95 points. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
