Jadot Corton Grèves Grand Cru Domaine Louis Jadot 2018, Burgundy, France

The commune of Aloxe-Corton has the unusual distinction of having over half its area covered in Grand Cru vineyards. The Corton Grands Crus are situated on the famous “Rognon de Corton”. They have an exposure ranging from East to South and Southwest. The Grand Cru is a powerful wine with a structure similar to Côte de Nuits wines. The vineyard orientation allows to elaborate a wine with silky tannins and harmonious acidity. Les Grèves is a South east exposure vineyard based on a siliceous soil. This gives power and delicacy to the wine. This wine is fermented in vats during 3-4 weeks and aged 18-20 months in oak barrels before bottling. This exceptional site yields a powerful and delicate wine, with a deep colour and powerful aromas of little red fruits and spicy notes. Its silky tannins and perfect structure will allow a good ageing.
