  • Our Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Clos du Chapitre" is named after the canons who were important land-owners in Burgundy in the thirteenth century. They belonged to the bishop's inner-circle and were known as the Cathedral Order (or 'chapitre cathédraux' in French) . Even today, many parcels carry the name "Clos du chapitre" such as in Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin and Aloxe-Corton. In the heart of the village of Aloxe-Corton in the locality of "Les Meix" and completely surrounded by walls, our "Clos du Chapitre" yields a powerful and elegant wine.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    This wine has a beautifully clean pale lemon colour and swirls of fruit, peach and oak aromas rise from the glass. On tasting this premier cru the balanced acids and good structure are impressive and the delicate fruit flavours are complimented deliciously by honey, hazlenut and oak notes. A round and powerful wine with plenty of ageing potential. Tasted 11.02.04
