Burgundy Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru

The Maison Aegerter, located in Nuit-Saint-Georges, Côte-d’Or, is thriving in a region known for both its traditions and its innovations. The Aegerters believe that nature cannot be hurried. It must be listened to and pampered. All the vintages, from the most accessible to the most exceptional, have one thing in common: they are the outcome of a resolutely modern vision and dynamic. The best of Burgundy’s terroirs is well worth it. These passionate people are daring enough to leave the beaten track and offer all consumers, beginners and experts alike, carefully picked selections, new blends and different bottles.

This is a production and trading company whose hallmark is creativity. This characteristic, passed on down the generations, is in the Aergerter DNA. Like father, like son. The Chromatiques range is also available for the Aligoté, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Appellation
Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru
Linking the Côte de Nuits with the Côte de Beaune, the hill of Corton signals a change in the landscape. Towards Beaune the land becomes more rounded, its sharp contours yielding to gentle valleys. Like its neighbours Ladoix-Serrigny and Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton (pronounced “Alosse”) enjoys a perfect wine-growing location and forms as it were a guard of honour on the approach to the prestigious appellations Grands Crus Corton and Corton-Charlemagne. The Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée dates back to 1938. A cross section of the Corton hill reveals a classic geological picture. At altitudes of between 200 and 300 metres, the soil is reddish brown with flint and limestone debris (known as “chaillots”) mixed in, and is rich in potassium and phosphoric acid. The vines face due east. Wines from the Northern end are more tender and fruity while those from the Southern end are firmer and more complex. Pebbly soil favours supple, highly-bred wines, while clay and marl breeds firmness and complexity.
