Pleasure Wine: Corton-Charlemagne Wines

 

Discover the Corton-Charlemange appellation

 

The Corton-Charlemagne AOC is the sibling of the Corton AOC. Together, they share the Grands Crus hillside of the Corton mountains. The 52 hectares vineyard, located on the Côte de Beaune, is planted near Ladoix and Pernand (to the south). It's one of the highest plots in Burgundy, sitting at 280-330 meters of altitude.

The best wines in this climate are made in a small locality called "Le Charlemagne". Here, they benefit from the rich soil formed during the Late Jurassic period and a full-south sun exposure. The other climates are facing the north-west, which can sometimes hamper the grapes maturation when the light's too low. The Corton-Charlemagne name only applies to white wines, 300,000 bottles of which are produced each year (around 2,500 hectoliters in total).

This beautiful white wine comes from the Le Charlemagne (Aloxe-Corton) and En Charlemagne (Pernand-Vergelesses) climates, as well as from some minor climates that can use the name: Les Pougets, Le Corton or Les Languettes. The main rule is that the origin of the climate is never mentioned on the bottle's label.
