With a bright, vigorous crimson color, this Corton Grand Cru “Charlotte Dumay” Hospices de Beaune 2017, is a fresh and floral Pinot Noir. The nose is intense, revealing aromas of violets, cherries, blackcurrant and sweet spices. Delicately precise across the palate, this wine has a great aging potential. This refinement is the hallmark of the Bressandes vineyard, making a stylish Corton.
5 to 30 years
In 1534, “For the remedy and health of her soul,’’ Charlotte Dumay, wife without descendant of the Guardian of the Royal Mint in Dijon, gave to the Hospices de Beaune 100 ouvrées (approx 4.3 hectares) of vineyard and fallow land in the domain of Aloxe, as well as a stone- built house. This Cuvee of the Hospices features amongst those offering the greatest longevity.
