The vineyard is between the villages of Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix. Its red clay soil and southeast-facing slopes on the hill of Corton just at the beginning of Côte de Nuits gives the power of Côte de Nuits with the elegance of Beaune. The soil is dense like bedrock, so the vines need to work hard. 70% stemmed to 30% destemmed. This wine is alive with a lovely balance and great length on the palate, complex with some secondary flavours kicking in, unusual for only two years old. This wine is wonderful yet serious.  Natural sulfites only.

Claude Nicolay

Claude Nicolay & her brother, François, are the current generation in a family estate that was founded in 1834. They have small plots totalling 34 acres dotted throughout some of Burgundy’s biggest names including; Savigny-lès-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. Claude and François have not rested on the prestigiousfamily name (they are related to the Chandon family of Moët& Chandon in Champagne). Since 2001 they have been on ajourney towards fully biodynamic viticulture, a reaction towhat they felt was the destruction of vineyards in Burgundy through profuse spraying with chemical pesticides and herbicides. What you get here is not just a Chardonnay from the exalted Grand Cru slopes of Corton-Le Charlemagne, but a pure andhonest expression of time and place. Gently nurtured inseven-year-old barrels after a slow fermentation, it displays power and elegance from early on, developing richness and complexity as it matures in bottle.
