Tasting Notes

Legend has it that the Corton hillside was once planted exclusively with red grape variety and that Charlemagne himself had a penchant for these wines. Unfortunately, the red wine left scarlet stains in the Emperor's flowing beard and his wife feared that this would bring shame upon the royal dignity. Charlemagne therefore decided to pull out the red vines and replant the vineyards with white grape variety in order to continue drinking his favourite wine. The Faiveley family purchased this parcel in 1874 along with the Corton "Clos des Cortons Faiveley" Grand Cru Monopole. The two parcels are situated side by side just above Ladoix-Serrigny.

Provenance

A family collection from many years, perfectly cellared, now in professional storage. This is the Canadian portion of a worldwide, multi thousand bottle collection.
