The domain

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 domain to the highest rank, both in France and internationally. 

The wine

This great wine has aromas of citrus, peach as well as floral notes that tend towards honeysuckle, hazelnut and cinnamon. Persistent on the palate, this vintage has a good ageing potential and represents the elite of the Corton Charlemagne appellation. Ideal to accompany poultry.

You have chosen a wine older than twenty years. It has aged peacefully in our cellars, nevertheless, its quality can be variable. If one of those bottles was not to your taste it would remain at your expense.
