Domaine Michel Mallard et Fils - Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2020


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...
