Corton Perrières Grand Cru 2018 - Vincent Girardin

From the estate

 

AGE OF VINE

45 years old

 

GEOLOGY

The grapes come from the plot "Les Perrières" Grand Cru in the center of the village of Aloxe-Corton, in the north of the Côte de Beaune. Soil: clay and limestone. The slope is steep, eastern exposure. The pruning is done in Guyot with various green works (disbudding, trellising, topping).

 

VINIFICATION

Manual harvesting, sorting on the vines and then sorting on a sorting table (depending on the year, use of an optical sorting machine) at the winery.

 

BREEDING

After a light crushing and destemming, the grapes are put in stainless steel tanks. A small amount of whole grapes may be added depending on the condition of the raw material. After a cold maceration of a few days, the active phase of fermentation takes place with temperature control. During this phase, pumping over and/or punching of the cap is practiced. After pneumatic pressing, the wines are put in barrels (about 30% new wood) where the maturation takes place. This lasted 15 months, during which the malolactic fermentation took place. One month before bottling, the wine from the different barrels is blended in vats. No fining and a light lenticular filtration precedes the bottling. Some modifications on the overall technique can be made depending on the vintage. The bottling is done according to the lunar calendar.

 

TASTING

The discreet wood serves as a backdrop to a beautifully ripe and complex nose of black fruits, earth and wet stones that reflect the typical wild character of Corton. There's a nice concentration of soft, round flavors and an obvious minerality found just before the clean finish.

 

METS

Red meat, hare à la royal, beef bourguignon, wild boar stew, mature cheeses. Serve at 14°c.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
