Corton Blanc Grand Cru
The winemakers' mother, Nadine, decided to plant Chardonnay in the Corton Bressandes vineyard because she wanted to have some Chardonnay to drink in the mid-term while the Charlemagne was aging! The final blend is eighty percent Corton Bressandes and twenty percent Corton Chaumes. An unusual Chardonnay coming mainly from Pinot Noir soils, so quite full, evoking yellow fruits (peach, apricot) and a touch of honey. Since 2011, the winery has been incorporating a small amount of new oak on this wine and in 2017, 20% of the barrels were new.
