Aloxe Corton 2017
Producer: Domaine Maldant
Wine Style: Red
Region: Burgundy, Côtes de Beaune
Désignation: Aloxe Corton
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
Description: Quite dark in colour, deep ruby. While young, the wine’s aroma suggests a spring garden with small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). These intensify with age and evolve into peony and jasmine, preserved and brandied fruits, pistachio, prune, leather, truffle, mushroom and cinnamon.
The deep soil begets a vigorous, full-bodied Pinot Noir, robust yet refined. Tender and fruity, this wine reaches its peak after 3 to 5 years in the cellar, revealing a firm and well-built body, richly chewy and with pleasing tannins.
