Vineyards situation : The commune of Aloxe-Corton has the unusual distinction of having over half its area covered in Grand Cru vineyards. It has an exposure ranging from east to south and Southwest.

Characteristics : The Grand Cru vineyard of Les Pougets is directly adjacent to Le Charlemagne climat, on the upper and mid-slope. It is among the five vineyards of the commune in which the variegated soils, alternating between chalk and iron-rich marl, produce both Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne.

Wine making : This wine is fermented in vats during 3-4 weeks and aged 18-20 months in oak barrels before bottling.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : This exceptional site yields a wine of sumptuous brilliance and complexity, powerfully structured and richly fruited. The aromatic Pinot Noir bouquet and deep, layered berry and oak flavours culminate in a seductive, persistent finish. The red wines will complement roast meat or meat in a highly-seasoned sauce, game and most cheeses.

Preservation : This wine should not be drunk before 5 years and will certainly improve until 15 to 20 years.
