Domaine D‘Ardhuy Aloxe-Corton

Varietal Composition

100% Pinot Noir

Fermentation Method

The grapes are harvested manually, sorted, crushed and destemmed. Fermentation is started rapidly without maceration.
Colour, aromas and tannins are extracted naturally (no enzyme addition, no forced heat extraction) only through punching of the cap. Vatting time is 12-14 days. Free-run wine and first press are blended, settled cold and put in barrels. The wine is left to mature in barrels, 30% of which are new oak. Oak from different regions is used, but the principal source is Bertranges. Maturing takes place over a year; the wine is then bottled with no fining, and only a slight filtration.

Tasting Notes

A deep red robe colour.

Reveal its undergrowth and mushrooms aromas.

The Aloxe-Corton is among the most tannic wines of Burgundy. A wine for laying down, which needs time to tame its ardent taste and then will reveal its undergrowth and mushrooms aromas together with animal and leather tastes.
