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

Pre Arrival Offer

We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.
