Description: This particular wine is only produced in years when the Pinot Noir grapes reach perfect maturity. The wine derives from the following holdings: Les Bressandes, Les Chaumes, Les Pougets, Les Perrières and Les Grèves, all of which are planted with vines with an average age of over 40 years. After about 10-12 months of ageing, each cask is then meticulously tasted and only the finest ones, showing the best colour, bouquet and capacity to age, will be blended to make Château Corton-Grancey.

Tasting note: The Corton Grancey 2005 offers a rich bouquet of mineral notes (chalk, earth), spices and ripe fruit (black cherry). The wine is well-balanced, supple and round on the palate. The finish is long and firm which is typical of a great Corton.

Cellaring Potential: To keep for 10-15 years

Suggested Food Match: Young boar and black cherries, roasted beef, duck ‘à l’orange’, roasted quail, Roquefort
