Corton

The Corton Grands Crus are all located in Code de Breaune where the Corton mountain is, which gathers the towns of Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton and Pernan-Vergelesses, between the Côte des Pierres (south of the Côte de nuit, where grapevine interweaves in a chequered pattern with Comblanchien stone quarries) and Savigny-les-Beaune (north of the Côte de Beaune). 

The vineyard is situated between 250 and 330 meters above sea level, forming a one-of-a-kind amphitheatre. 

Other than the Corton-Charlemagne in white, the Corton mountain produces the red or white Corton. 

Recognized on the 31st of July 1937, this Grand Cru comes mostly in red (it then can be named after its climate, of which there are 25) but it also exists in white (small volume) because of the surface dedicated. 

Production surface area referenced in 2011 : 

Reds : 91.53 hectares in Pinot Noir variety 

Whites : 4.08 hectares in Chardonnay variety 

Climates and localities of the Corton Grand Cru designation : 

Basses Mourottes, En Charlemagne, Hautes Mourottes, La Vigne-au-Saint, Le Charlemagne, Le Clos du Roi, le Corton, le Meix Lallemand, Le Rognet et Corton, Les Bressandes, Les Chaumes, Les Chaumes et la Voierosse, Les Combes, Les Fiètres, Les Grandes Lolières, Les Grèves, Les Languettes, Les Maréchaudes, Les Meix, Les Moutottes, Les Paulands, Les Perrières, Les Pougets, Les Renardes, Les Vergennes. 

The high number of Grand cru climates explains the identified shades in these wines’ characters. In white (rare, notably in Vergennes, Languettes), the aging potential is 4 to 10 years whereas reds can be kept in cellar for several decades. 

White Corton colours : light gold with green highlights. Mineral shades (flint) combine with butter, baked apple, fern, cinnamon and honey. Elegant and pure, smooth and round, this original Corton Chardonnay draws near Corton-Charlemagne.

White : the white Cortons will naturally suit seafood and crayfish, fishes and creamy poultry, goat cheese. 

Serving temperature : 12 to 14 °C.

In red, the Corton’s colours are displayed a sustained crimson, dark red velvet with magenta density. 

Broad, its bouquet expresses itself with fruity notes (blueberry, currant, kirsch) or floral (violet), evolving towards undergrowth, animal, leather, fur, pepper, liquorice. To the palate, it is powerful and full-bodied, structured, and the chewy body comes to the fore. Firm, frank and rich, it needs time to fully blossom (4 to 12 years). 

Solid and opulent, red Corton is a prominent figure of Burgundy, with a great complexity, an impressive chewy body balanced between sensuality and structure. That is why strong rind-washed   and blue cheeses will be able to tame it. But it undisputedly perfectly matches strong meats and will confide better, playing up the same tune, the one of strength and aromatic intensity : with a piece of beef, roasted or grilled, and every piece of game, fur and winged game, roasted, braised, and of course sauced.

Serving temperature : 14 to 16 °C.
