Charlemagne (742-814), then emperor, is said to have noticed that the snow on the hill of Corton melted more quickly than on the other hills of the region. He ordered that vines be planted in this particularly bright spot. It was in 775 that the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of Saulieu inherited the vines, as they were at the cutting edge of viticultural techniques at the time. They were the most suitable to make the kingdom's wines shine and the following centuries have not managed to contradict this perceptive choice. Since then, five generations have succeeded one another and have helped to raise the estate to the highest rank, both in France and internationally.
The wine has a magnificent persistence on the palate, with aromas of citrus, peach and fine floral notes that evolve into honeysuckle, hazelnut and cinnamon. This delightful wine is worthy of representing the elite of the Corton-Charlemagne appellation and should be kept. To be served with lobster, lobster and crab or foie gras and blue cheeses.
