Aloxe Corton 1er Cru Les Chaillots 2010

Aloxe Corton 1er Cru Les Chaillots 2010

Of the total hectarage under vines, the Latour family control just over 13% of production centred on the famous Château and cuverie of Corton-Grancey. The name "Les Chaillots" refers to the stony, pebbly nature of the soil in this vineyard, as "caillou" means pebble in french. There is an alliance in the wines of Aloxe-Corton between the finesse of a Côte de Beaune and the mellow, powerful appeal of the Côte de Nuits.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Ruby red with a perfume of cherry and liquorice, typical of Pinot. On tasting it is round but still a little tight. With time this will evolve beautifully. The Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Les Chaillots" reveals a beautiful garnet color and fragrance intoxicating spice, licorice, dried fruit and underbrush. On the palate there are hints of underbrush.
Ratings
Jancis Robinson - 16/20 Lots of fruit on display, and a pretty showy oak character to match. Light, refined, austere acid despite the ripeness of fruit.
Food Pairing Notes
Roasted duck
