Aloxe Corton 1er Cru les Chaillots 2015

Aloxe Corton 1er Cru les Chaillots 2015

Aloxe-Corton is the home village of the Latour family who have been closely involved in the affairs of the commune for over three centuries. Of the total hectarage of this Premier Cru, the Domaine Louis Latour control over 13% of production centred on the famous Château and cuverie of Corton-Grancey. These vines are an important part of the Domaine Louis Latour. 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
This charming wine has ripe fruit aromas and its spicy nature was conferred by the 12 months it spent in oak barrels. Somewhat vanilla, and also liquorice, this complex wine is round yet mellow. A well balanced wine that should be enjoyed after three to five years of cellaring.
