Dom de la Juviniere Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

Dom de la Juviniere Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

Corton Charlemagne is a king among white wines- 100% Chardonnay and quintessential Burgundy.

Corton-Charlemagne 2018 is a powerful, complex wine. Its nose is intense, with notes of white stone fruits such as white peach, fresh hazelnut, vanilla, almond paste and roasting. The wine is full-bodied for the palate, and the vanilla is complemented by aromas of fresh almond and lime blossom. The experience ends with a very fine aromatic aftertaste that has subtle saline notes.

Situated almost on the border between the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune, and at altitudes between 280 and 330 metres, much of the Corton- Charlemagne appellation faces south-west (which is uncommon in these parts). The Hill of Corton, high and rounded, has vineyards on three sides.  The Corton Charlemagne appellation occupies the highest portion of the Hill of Corton where the gradients are steep (20-23%). 

These vineyards were a gift of the Emperor Charlemagne to the religious community of Saint-Andoche de Saulieu in the year 775. It remained in their possession for a thousand years, and today still celebrates, at least in name, their illustrious benefactor.  Its Grand Cru appellation dates from July 31, 1937.
