Notify me when this product is available:

At the edge of the wood of the Corton Hill, the parcel Le Charlemagne faces southwest and extends to the top of the hill overlooking the commune of Aloxe-Corton. According to legend, Charlemagne, king of the Franks, ceded a land of vines in 775 to the Chanoines who belonged to the Collegiate Church called Saint-Andoche de Saulieu. To show his gratitude, the Chanoines are said to have named these vines after him. 

Corton-Charlemagne presents notes of citrus fruits, lime blossom and cloves on the nose. The mouth is lively but generous, characterized by an elegant minerality that makes for a refreshing sensation.

Accompaniments: Foie gras, large shellfish, sea bream with candied lemon, fattened hen in a cream sauce, veal in a white sauce, blue cheese or even Epoisses cheese...
