The legend goes that all the hillside in Corton was once planted with red grapes. This plot belonged to the Emperor Charlemagne who delighted in the produce of his vines... Unfortunately, the wine would run down his long beard, leaving bright red stains. His wife, wanting to uphold royal dignity, complained to her husband about his love of wine. To keep the peace in his household, Charlemagne had his vines ripped out and had white grapes replanted... In future, he could satisfy his love of Corton, without spoiling his snowy-white beard and without suffering his wife's reproaches.

The nose reveals woody, fruity and floral notes and will be even more complex with a few years of patience. This wine is concentrated, with fine balance and very long-lasting flavours on the palate.
For its generous aromas, we can already start to enjoy this Grand Cru, but it will reach its full potential and reveal all its character after a few years in the cellar.
