History

This gift to the Hospices was made in gothic lettering on parchment, in 1534. "For the cure and salvation of her soul," the childless Charlotte Dumay, wife of the King’s Keeper of the Mint in Dijon, gave 100 ouvrées of vineyard and fallow land in the territory of Aloxe, with a house in stone. Today, this is one of the Hospices’s longest-lived, most sumptuously structured wines. Corton-Renardes makes up 63% of the Cuvée, Corton-Bressandes the balance, the vines being planted on a total of 24 different sectors of the famous hillside.

Terroirs

Corton-Renardes 1.50 ha.,
