Winemaker Notes

Intense bouquet with aromas of red and black fruit, spices and a touch a oak. Rich and structured on the palate, this wine needs a bit of patience in order to reveal its raciness and great distinction. Excellent ageing potential. Pair with venison, game birds, and full-flavored cheeses. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator

Fragrant with violet, black cherry, black currant, licorice, iron and spice, this is both powerful and restrained, with a supple texture and solid structure that are beautifully aligned. The aftertaste lingers with echoes of dark fruit, mineral and spice. Best from 2024

BH 95
Burghound.com
An overtly floral nose reflects notes of rose petal, lavender, acacia and violet along with nuances of red and black fruit, earth and a whiff of forest floor. There is excellent intensity, size, weight and power to the attractively textured big-bodied flavors that brim with minerality on the caressing but punchy finale. This beautifully balanced effort is in the classic mold of this wine as it's very clearly built for the long haul and again, I would suggest not touching this wine for at least a decade and two decades would not be much of a surprise.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
JS 95
James Suckling
Powerful yet sleek with effusive, ripe black-cherry character. Silky front palate, then the serious tannins come through. No hint of the rusticity and edginess that you sometimes get from this appellation. More than enough fruit to make a completely convincing package. Bold finish.
JM 95
Jasper Morris
Brilliant purple, not too deep. Sweetly perfumed, red fruit style, with a burst of concentration shortly after the wine hits the mouth. Picked early, raspberry and strawberry fruit, Frédéric Weber played with more whole bunch and that has worked. “Le Corton is usually Cistercian, but we had to save it from over ripeness”, he explained.
Range: 92-95
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Le Corton Grand Cru confirms its superb showing from barrel, blossoming in the glass with scents of wild berries, peonies, violets, blood orange and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, sumptuous and enveloping, with melting tannins, beautiful purity of fruit and lively balancing acids, it's long and perfumed, concluding with a saline, rose-inflected finish. I have never tasted a Corton from Bouchard that was so good, so young.
D 93
Decanter
From a 3.55ha parcel in Le Corton, at the top of the slope on thin soils, reducing the yield and making for a brilliantly fresh wine. The aromas begin with fragrant red fruit and spice, then a savoury mineral note at the end. On the palate, the wine is crisp, tannic and tightly wound. There is substance here, however, and with time it should open well.

Aloxe-Corton Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

Prevailing over the charming village of Aloxe, the hill of Corton actually commands the entire appellation. Corton is the only Grand Cru for Pinot Noir in the entire Côte de Beaune. Its Grand Crus red wines can be described simply as “Corton” or Corton hyphenated with other names. These vineyards cover the southeast face of the hill of Corton where soils are rich in red chalk, clay and marl.

Dense and austere when young, the best Corton Pinot Noir will peak in complexity and flavor after about a decade, offering some of the best rewards in cellaring among Côte de Beaune reds. Pommard and Volnay offer similar potential.

The great whites of the village are made within Corton-Charlemagne, a cooler, narrow band of vineyards at the top of the hill that descends west towards the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. Here the thin and white stony soils produce Chardonnay of exceptional character, power and finesse. A minimum of five years in bottle is suggested but some can be amazing long after. Fully half of Aloxe-Corton is considered Grand Cru.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
