TASTING NOTE

Aromas of white chocolate, honey and citrus. Concentrated and delicious, with lots of finesse and well balanced. On the palate there is vanilla, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts framing the fruit core. Still young, with potential for ageing.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

The Cornu family settled in the town of Ladoix in 1870 and established the domaine in 1875. Edmond Cornu took control of the estate in 1956 and in 1959 began to bottle their wines. Up to that time all wines made at the estate had been sold to negociants.

As the private clientele increased, Cornu also expanded the domaine. Currently, the estate comprises 15 hectares, 13.5 hectares planted to Pinot Noir and the rest to the classic white grapes of Burgundy (1.5 hectares to Chardonnay plus 0.5 hectare of Aligoté). The vineyards are spread across the communes of Ladoix, Chorey, Aloxe Corton and Savigny in the Cote de Beaune and a small parcel in Corgoloin in the Cote de Nuits.
