  • Our Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Clos du Chapitre" is named after the canons who were important land-owners in Burgundy in the thirteenth century. They belonged to the bishop's inner-circle and were known as the Cathedral Order (or 'chapitre cathédraux' in French) . Even today, many parcels carry the name "Clos du chapitre" such as in Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin and Aloxe-Corton. In the heart of the village of Aloxe-Corton in the locality of "Les Meix" and completely surrounded by walls, our "Clos du Chapitre" yields a powerful and elegant wine.
