OUR WINES

Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru
« Les Fournières »

Deep ruby colour; its complex nose offers a great intensity of red fruits (raspberry, strawberry and cherry) in his younger age then dark fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) mixed with spicy notes after few years. Lightly oaky and nice smoothness. Warming wine and long after taste; what we are expecting from a Premier Cru.
