Corton Wines

Corton is the only red Grand Cru of the Cote de Beaune. It comes from vineyards on the hill of the Montagne de Corton to the north and west of Beaune, and some vineyards from neighbouring Ladoix-Serrigny and Pernand-Vergelesses creep into this.

About Corton Wines

Aloxe-Corton produces predominantly red wines, which are full, structured and often need time to soften and develop. Corton itself is the largest grand cru area in Burgundy, and comes from vineyards on the southern slopes of the hill; it produces superbly intense and structured wines, which, once again, command a high price internationally. Aloxe-Corton definitely benefits from the association!

The most famous appellation in this commune is Corton Charlemagne, one of the world’s top Chardonnays, produced from vines grown solely on the hills of the Montagne de Corton, which spans both Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses. History tells us that the Charlemagne name comes from the fact that it was the emperor Charlemagne who first brought the Chardonnay grape to the Montagne de Corton. It is one of the largest white Grand cru vineyards, covering just under 180 acres of land; the wines are deep, fragrant, rich and intense, with a honeyed, ripe stone fruit character, longevity, and an enchantingly fresh, flinty, minerality. They are also some of the longest lasting whites of the Cote de Beaune.
