Chandon de Briailles Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru Les ValozièresRegular price $94.99
The soil where this wine is made is a bit out of the ordinary: thicker clay than in Bressandes with a notable amount of iron and pebbly limestone deeper down. It's hard for the roots to go deep here. The parcel faces east, just below mid-slope, providing early ripening conditions. Purple fruit with wild aromas. This wine offers notions of sweet berry fruit, cassis, rich soil tones and spices. Medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, from a blocky beginning, this has evolved into something rather charming and elegant by the standards of the site.
