Corton, Domaine Chandon de Briailles, Burgundy, France, 2013
£30 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £235.00
For the month of August, we thought we would showcase one of Burgundy’s most famous appellation, Corton.
The Chandon de Briailles estate has been under the ownership of the De Nicolay family since 1834 and extends nowadays to almost 14 hectares.
The Corton vineyard is only 0.6 hectares and its particularity is that the vines are grown on soils suited for Pinot Noir conferring the wine an incredible richness, ripeness and complexity.
Although 2013 started as a difficult vintage, it all changed toward the end of the season allowing the grapes to ripen to their full potential.
The wine is showing delicious aromas of peach and apricot with tones of white flowers and brioche. The palate is rich and textured with a long and mineral finish. This exceptional wine pairs amazingly well with our Cornish turbot.
