Corton Grand Cru Cuvée Docteur Peste Rouge

PDF



Region: Côte de Beaune
Village: Aloxe-Corton
Level: Grand Cru
AOC: Corton Grand Cru
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Color: Rouge

Tasting

A very solid dense purple black colour indicates a wine of considerable intensity. The fruit is luxurious in quality, definitely showing some black-fruit notes, and full enough to match the firm structure of the finish. This is a powerful Corton with a real cellaring potential.

Food matching

The wine's power deserves a cuisine on a par: beautiful grilled red meats, game or strong cheese.

History

Jean-Louis Peste was a doctor at the Hospices de Beaune for 30 years in the mid-19th century. His daughter, Baroness du Baÿ, bequeathed a vast estate to the Hôtel-Dieu in his memory, in 1924. Made from 89% fully mature, or very old vines, this Cuvée comes principally (52%) from Chaumes et Voierosses, which is south and south-west-facing land. These vines were planted 4 times between 1976 and 1985. Les Bressandes, whose oldest vines date from 1940, with Les Grèves bring complexity, richness and balance to this Cuvée.

Terroirs

Chaumes 1.02 ha.,

Les Bressandes 0.95 ha.,

Les Grèves 0.12 ha.
