Corton-Charlemagne is named after the Roman Emperor Charlemagne, who once owned the hill of Corton that the vineyards now rest. It is the largest A.O.C which stretches out 3 villages: Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix-Serrigny, forming la Butte de Corton.
The geological differences and the different exposures permit to produce rich and fat wines with mineral and crystalline overtones. Wine of great finesse, its bouquet is complex: mineral fragrances, pear, spices. The attack is fresh and mineral on the palate, structured with a fine length in the mouth. A wine of great class to savor within a few years.
