Terroir

It is the largest A.O.C which stretches out three villages: Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix-Serrigny, forming la Butte de Corton. The geological differences and the different exposures permit to produce rich and fat wines with mineral and crystalline overtones. There are two superposed limestone origins from the oxfordien period. The vine roots have to draw the essential elements which give the specific taste of this terroir. Our cuvée is vinified most of the time from a few small plots located in the three villages.
