Aloxe Corton 1er Cru les Chaillots 2016

Aloxe Corton 1er Cru les Chaillots 2016

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.

Tasting Notes
With a beautiful ruby color, the Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Les Chaillots" 2012 offers a delicate nose of cherry, liquorice and cloves. On tasting, it has great elegance and soft tannins.
Ratings
90 points, Allen Meadows, burghound.com A ripe and fresh if somewhat atypical nose is comprised of red pinot fruit and earth aromas that are set against a backdrop of menthol and wood. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the lightly mineral-infused middle weight flavors that culminate in a dusty, firm and only mildly rustic finish.
Food Pairing Notes
birds - poultry - mature cheeses
