2016 Bouchard Pere Et Fils Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

Share on Facebook

An  attractive  story  is  told  about  this  appellation:  Charlemagne  was  very  fond  of  the wine from Le Corton which, at the time, was red. Towards the end of the Emperor's life,  the  vineyards  facing  south  were  planted  with  chardonnay,  to  produce  a  white wine  to  avoid  staining  his  white  beard.  In  1909,  Bouchard  Père  &  Fils  acquired  60% of  the  prestigious  vineyard  at  Le  Corton  (i.e.  6.93  hectares)  which,  has  the  rare particularity   of   being   planted   with   either   pinot   noir   or   chardonnay.   Today, Bouchard  Père  &  Fils  is  the  third  most  important  owner  in  Corton-Charlemagne, with 3.65 hectares
