As with the Domaine`s Aloxe-Corton white, these vines came to Jean-Baptiste from his father for the first time in 2018. They lie downhill from Corton Grand Cru Les Combes, growing on deep, pebble-rich soils, with fine clays. The vines are the oldest in the Domaine, dating back to 1942. Grapes were 100% de-stemmed, giving a wine of relatively pale, violet-purple colour, with beautiful, fine fragrance. Close-knit fruitiness, with rich, creamy texture characterise the palate, which will benefit from 2-5 years in bottle to reach full maturity (for drinking 2024-2030+).
