The village of Aloxe-Corton, situated three kms. to the north of Beaune (Burgundy, France) is full of history. The vineyards started in the second century B.C. The properties there were given the name of "Curtis", with Aloxe Corton taking pride in the title of "Corton Othonis", contracted to "Courthon" and finally "Corton".
With a present-day population of 180, the tilte's territory spreads over 284 hectares of marly soil for the white wines and of reddish-brown chalk soil for the reds. 96 hectares are classed as Aloxe-Corton, 38 as Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru, 101 hectares as Corton red and white Grand Cru, and 49 hectares as Grand Cru Corton Charlemagne.
Aloxe-Corton is renowned for its production of red wines, 100% pinot noir, among the richest in tannin in the wine-growing sector of Burgundy. Their structure, which is robust, makes for very powerful wines which develop their delicacy after several years of growing. The white wines, 100% chardonnay, among them the famous Corton Charlemagne, show a fine golden color, a fragrance and a mellowness which contribute to the world wide renown of the vineyards of our village.
