Aloxe Corton 1er Cru Les Chaillots 2008
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. This is a wine that can age for over 10 years.
