Corton Grand Cru "Les Renardes"


The vintage
965 bottles, 30 magnums and 3 jeroboams have been produced for the vintage 2018.
0.3 hectares of vines planted in 1956.
This plot sits mid-slope on the hill of Corton. It faces southeast and is considered to be one of Corton’s most prestigious.
These vines grow on very chalky soil on the lower part of the hillside with much more clay on the upper part; the opposite on the rest of the Côte de Beaune. This is due to a limestone fault in the middle of the plot which has resulted in lots of limestone mother rock outcrops on the lower part of the slope.
Harvesting is manual with 40% of whole clusters.
3 weeks of fermentation with very light extraction.
60% of new oak barrels are used for an aging period of 20 months.
Pinot Noir : 100%


Tasting notes
This wine is always very lively thanks to the strong presence of limestone in the soil. It is racy and powerful, with great depth.
