The extensive area covered by this appellation Grand Cru and the large number of different Climats it contains explain the observable differences in character among the wines grown here. The rare whites (grown mainly in the Climats of Vergennes and Languettes) have a keeping potential of 4-10 years. Colour: pale gold with green highlights. Mineral aromas (flint) blend with butter, baked apple, bracken, cinnamon and honey. Elegant and highly-bred, supple and well rounded, this unusual Chardonnay has much in common with Corton-Charlemagne. The Corton reds are an intense velvety crimson, darkening towards magenta. Their generous aromatic expression is of fruit notes (blueberry, gooseberry, kirsch cherry) or flowers (violet), evolving towards underbrush, animal, leather, fur, pepper and liquorice. On the palate this wine is well-built, powerful and muscular and the chewy body comes to the fore.

Corton Charlemagne bottle

Part of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune appellation. There are three partially overlapping Grand Cru AOCs that cover the vineyards on the Corton hill; Corton for red and white wine, Corton-Charlemagne for white wine, and the little used Charlemagne for white wine. Corton-Charlemagne from Chardonnay grapes mostly originate from the higher parts of the hill. The vineyard surface of these three appellations totalled 147.5 hectares (364 acres) in 2008. Many vineyard parcels on the hill are allowed to be used either for red Corton or white Corton-Charlemagne.

Corton red wine and Corton Charlemagne white wine, two grands crus in Burgundy, share the Montagne de Corton hill near Beaune.
In Burgundy, there are three villages, Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix-Serrigny and Pernand-Vergelesses, where the Montagne de Corton hill, located at the northern tip of the Côte de Beaune, unfolds its gently sloping vineyards. At the heart of this vast natural amphitheatre, two great wines, Corton red and Corton-Charlemagne white, share exceptional growing conditions. urgundy is never as magical as when it brings together, side by side, on the same hill, two grands crus, Corton and Corton-Charlemagne, that express the best of their soils in two different grape varieties.
Corton occupies most of the mountain with 90 hectares, and is the only red grand cru of the Côte de Beaune, but you can still find a white Corton, which is quite a rarity. Over such a large area, Corton has a whole range of expressions. However, “The King of the Bons Viveurs”, as Camille Rodier, the owner of Clos de Vougeot, called it, is first and foremost a powerful and opulent wine. A velvet robe fills the glass with a bouquet of red fruits, of violets evolving towards notes of undergrowth, animal, pepper. This athletic wine works wonders with a piece of braised beef, game in sauce, or intense cheeses.
