Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Our Aloxe-Corton develops aromas with a dominant of wild woodland fruit (redcurrant and blackberry with floral nuances (lilies and jasmine). With a very supple tannic structure, this well-balanced wine has lovely pleasant velvety tannins with just a hint of sweetness. The finish is long and aromatic, reminiscent of the fruity aromas of the nose.

Food Pairing – Try this wine with game, elaborate red meat dishes, and classic cheeses.

Serve at 17°C (62°F). Drink while young or it may be laid down for 5 to 7 years.
