Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Valozières

2017
France
Burgundy

Very Limited; Please Inquire.

This Premier Cru lies beneath the Corton Bressandes and next to the Corton Paulands, both Grands Crus. The soil here is a bit out of the ordinary: clayey at the surface and pebbly limestone deeper down, and quite uneven. The parcel faces east, just below mid-slope, providing early ripening conditions.

"The 2018 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru Les Valozières has really rounded out since I tasted it from barrel, offering up notions of sweet berry fruit, cassis, rich soil tones and spices. Medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, from a blocky beginning, this has evolved into something rather charming and elegant by the standards of the site."
