From within the village of Aloxe Corton just beneath the church, surrounded by houses that encapsulate a lot of heat and store it overnight, reducing diurnal difference. As a result this is an earlier ripening vineyard. Neal Martin, Vinous.com: “The 2018 Aloxe Corton Clos du Chapitre 1er cru is a cru that Anne Morey said was difficult to place within her portfolio, but it is certainly worth seeking out. It has a light, slightly tertiary bouquet that just needs a little more intensity to accentuate the licorice-tinged cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet core of black cherry and boysenberry fruit and, again, hints of licorice. The well-defined finish lingers in the mouth. Excellent.” 90-92 Points
