Baroness Du Baÿ was the daughter of Dr. Peste, a physician at the Hôtel-Dieu, who, during her lifetime, donated vineyards on the Aloxe-Corton hillsides, in 1924. This Cuvée has been separately vinifed since 2007. It allows the unique personality of this exceptional Grand Cru terroir to be fully expressed and produces structured, distinctive and longlived wines. Over 45% of this cuvee is planted with vines aged 40 years or more, the balance being between 26 and 14 years old.
