Tasting Notes

From four mid-slope parcels with vines planted on a mix of limestone and clay soils. The vines are 35 years old and east-facing. A classic red Corton coming from a vintage with miniscule yields. This historic estate was established in 1834. Claude de Nicolay took over from her mother as winemaker in 1988 and has the privilege of working this historic terroir on the hill of Corton.
