Description

Located in the "Les Languettes" climat on the south/southeast side of the Corton hill, the plot, which once belonged to the nuns of the Lieu-Dieu Abbey, was nicknamed “Vigne Dieu” by the old wine merchants and historians of Aloxe-Corton. A terroir renowned for its white wines whose power, due in part to its location on the hillside, can showcase finesse, delicacy and purity, on both an aromatic and a gustatory level.

Tasting note

Of infinite delicateness, the bouquet expresses buttery notes, aromas of baked apple, citrus fruit, pineapple, linden blossom, juniper, cinnamon and flint. Hints of honey are also frequent. The concentration, distinction and balance of this Chardonnay are pleasantly surprising. The finish is complex and intense.

Food pairing

Savour this Grand Cru with shellfish such as lobster, crayfish or crab, fish as well as certain white meats, poultry in cream and blue cheeses.

About the producer

This fine 18 hectares estate in Pommard is entirely owned by the increasingly highly regarded Maison Albert Bichot. Respectful of the environment and diligent in both vineyard and cellar, under the instruction of winemaker Dominique Bon, the domaine has fashioned a selection of impressive 2014s including a refined, seamlessly balanced Meursault 1er Cru ‘Les Charmes’.
