This Grand Cru Pinot Noir is grown on the limestone of Corton Hill’s upper eastern slopes. Upon aging, it becomes rich and vibrant, complex and ever-changing on the palate — but it is less approachable when young. The 2010 vintage can’t be beat, but it requires cellaring. For a vintage that is ready to drink now, try our 1999 or 2003.

  • A somewhat closed nose exhibits mostly floral aromas. Medium body on the palate. Elegant, with well-integrated tannins and juicy red fruit flavors. Also evident are violets, chalky mineral suggestions, and spice flavors. Superbly balanced. Likely to be seductive when mature, but will need until around 2020 to be easily approachable.

    Food pairing: venison and other game meats; strong cheeses

  • The keynotes in this well structured Pinot Noir are dark berries and violets. The nose is more floral than fruity. Expect the berry flavors to dominate the palate once the wine develops. Excellent acidity and balance.

    Food pairing: Pork tenderloin
