Corton Charlemagne Dubreuil
Grown from 35 year old vines. The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. Vinifed in 30% new French oak with agitation to the lees to add richness. Bright, mineral-driven quality. Aged for 12 months.
Beautiful limpid and gold colour in its youth, which takes on amber hues with age. Its bouquet breathes exotic fruit notes with citrus and pineapple, revealing rich honey aromas, grilled almonds and cinnamon. The mouth is ample round and fresh with a long well-balanced finish. This wine has great ageing potential.
