93Wine Spectator

Dense and monolithic, yet with ripe blackberry and plum notes...

93Stephen Tanzer

Captivating aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat and minerals. Tangy and deep, with distinctly wild, exhilarating flavors of fresh dark berries and game. Very rich, smooth, seamless wine with lovely volume and flesh...finishing with perfectly integrated tannins and superb persistence to its tangy dark raspberry flavor.

88-90The Wine Advocate

...blackberry and mulberry fruit aromas with high-toned sage and spice nuances...undeniable density and reservoir of ripe, fresh fruit...

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.


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.
