2013 Chandon de Briailles Corton “Les Marechaudes”

Article number: CdB Marech
Availability: In stock (6)

Maréchaudes is a part of the Aloxe commune, which is tiny with only 100 residents! Located just below Corton Bressandes, the vineyards have east, south-east exposure; Claude explained that here, you begin to see some similarities to the soil you find in the Cote de Nuits. The soil is red as it is very ferruginous, and you find limestone rocks throughout the vineyard. Chandon de Briailles has 2/5ths of a hectare here, planted in 1974 and 1979. The domaine has been working the parcel by horse since 2012 and avoids using tractors in the vineyard to avoid compacting the soil. Each vine is cared for by hand. It's a fantastic Grand Cru site.
