Producer
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès- Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer, which include some particularly well-sited vineyards.

Vineyard
These thirty-year-old vines are situated on the finest, west-facing slopes of the Corton-Charlemagne vineyard. The soil is thick marl with a strong proportion of limestone, over sand. The fruit was hand-picked on September 25th.

Winery
The wine was fermented and aged for fourteen months in oak barrels, with fifty percent new wood.

Taste
Classic Corton-Charlemagne aromas of ripe green apple and fresh almonds lead to a full-bodied yet taut, mineral palate of great stature and concentration. An excellent example of this large but distinguished grand cru.
