Winery information:

Clos de la Vigne au Saint is a very old vineyard; the earliest known record of its existence is in 1375 when it is mentioned in the records of the Chapter of Saulieu. The Latour family have a long connection with this vineyard which began in the early 19th century when Louis Latour's great great grandmother owned a section of the vineyard. Since then it has remained in family hands, passing from generation to generation. The vineyard has perfect southerly exposure on the Corton hill lying on a bedrock outcrop towards the bottom of the slope. The soil is a rusty red colour and rich in marl which gives the wines distinct aromas. This wine possesses the elegance that we expect from a Côte d'Or Grand Cru and will age particularly well.

The soil in the vineyards of Aloxe-Corton is of marl and limestone.

The average age of the vines are 40 years with an average yield of 40 hl/ha.


Tasting Note:

This wine has a magnificant red colour very typical of Pinot Noir. On the nose it is powerful with blackberry aromas and there is light spice on tasting along with well integrated tannins. This wine has a lasting finish, and is powerful yet elegant.

Serving temperature 16 - 17°
