The Story

The Hill of Corton lies in the midst of a cluster of famous wine-growing villages – Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Savigny-lès-Beaune – with, to the north, the southern end of the Côte de Nuits, where vineyards mingle with stone quarries (Comblanchien limestone). The vineyards lie at heights of 250-330 metres and form a kind of amphitheatre not found elsewhere in the Côte. The Hill of Corton produces white Corton-Charle...

Written Notes

It had fabulous and fresh aromatics, full of signature Coche minerality, nut, rain, honey, white smoke and citrus. It was a touch sweet aromatically, flirting with a Caliesque style, but it had great complexity of earth in there as well. It was softer in the mouth but still a baby, and Gil picked up on ‘unripe gooseberry on the finish.’ There was lushness and small doses of citrus and butter, all covered up. There was a little pop to the finish but more of a reserved quality. It needed time and will most likely be outstanding in time

Pale golden, butter, vanilla, flint, lime, lemon, touch of popcorn and smoke, intense, layered, gorgeous nose. More complex and nuanced, and somewhat less rich in comparison to the nose of Coche-Dury's Meursault's. Fresh acidity, lively, superb, mouthwatering, it's just so extremely good, so layered, so nuanced, intense yet transparent, extreme length, minutes.
