Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    A medium cherry red intensity, this village appellation has pronounced aromas of ripe red summer fruits, freshly crushed raspberries and redcurrents with subtle oak flavours.The palate reveals a supple yet firm tannic structure, balanced by generous fruit concentration, spice and black pepper and a long, elegant finish. A wine which expresses its typicity of origin.

Press review
    • Aloxe-Corton 2013 - Burghound.com - Avril 2015 - 88/100A markedly earthy and overtly sauvage nose offers up notes of various dark berries, plum and oak. The supple, round and attractively vibrant middle weight flavors terminate in a slightly edgy and  rustic finale where the wood telegraphed by the nose resurfaces. This is on the ligher side and should drink well almost immediately.
