Corton Grand Cru
Among the 26 Grands Crus reds of Burgundy, Corton is the only one located outside the Côte de Nuits. Vin sensual and structured at the same time, it proposes beautiful concentrations associated with complex bouquets ... but also varied according to the places-said.
Located north of the Côte de Beaune, between the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny, all the plots of Corton share the hill of Corton with his cousin Grand Cru white, the Corton-Charlemagne.
