2011 Dom. Bertagna Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

$220.00

These famous vineyards were originally a gift from Emperor Charlemagne to the religious community of Saint-Andoche de Saulieu in the year 775. Their south-west exposure is rather unusual for the area, making these some of the most prized Grand Cru Chardonnay vines of the Côte de Beaune. The plot is planted 1000 feet up on the highest part of the hill on limestone soil with white loam. A full bodied wine with notes of honey and vanilla, this wine makes for an excellent cheese pairing.


ABV % = 13.5

Corton-Charlemagne

Corton-Charlemagne is a grand cru in Burgundy's Côte-de-Beaune, located on top of the hill of Corton. The hill of Corton allows for both red and white grand cru wine, made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay respectively, but the vineyard of Charlemagne is white wine only. Whereas the wines from Pulign, and Chassagne are known for their minerality, Corton-Charlemagne is known for its power. These wines are known to have rich, ripe fruit, a big, round texture, and a finish that seems to last forever. They are traditionally oaked to balance that fruit intensity, and this expresses as rich and toasty versus buttery.
