RATINGS

93Vinous / IWC

Dark red cherries, plums, smoke, ash and scorched earth are some of the many nuances that come alive in the Corton-Perriéres.

92-94Burghound.com

A marvelously fresh if restrained nose displays a cool mélange of various red berry fruit, plenty of wet stone and discreet spice and earth nuances.

91-93Stephen Tanzer

Tightly wound and firmly structured but already shows lovely floral and stony character in the mouth. Serious, uncompromisingly dry Corton with a pure, long, intense finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, Le Corton

Corton is a Grand Cru vineyard for red wine within the Corton appellation. It is a long, slender, stony limestone site that wraps part way around the top slopes of Montagne de Corton, a hill that reaches to 1,150 feet. The 234-acre vineyard primarily faces south, west and east, and is sheltered by a windbreak of trees while also receiving excellent exposure to sun. Corton is the Cote de Beaune’s only red Grand Cru. The largest producers are Louis Latour, with 37.5 acres; Hospices de Beaune, with 16 acres; and D'Ardhuy, with 11.85 acres. The names of smaller vineyards within Corton are frequently added to the names of Corton wines, resulting in names such as Corton Les Renardes, Corton Les Chaumes, Corton les Perrieres, etc.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
