2019 Aloxe-Corton, Les Valozieres, Gérard Julien et Fils

Aloxe-Corton, which hugs the hill of Corton, may not be the most famous village in the Côte d’Or, overshadowed both metaphorically and literally by the grands crus, but in the hands of winemakers like Etienne the results can be impressive - and good value. This is spicy and dark-fruited on the nose, with a juicy palate that abounds with summer fruits and a voluminous, structured finish.

Tasting notes

From a 0.70-hectare parcel, the 2019 Aloxe-Corton Les Valozières 1er Cru has a focused, "cool" nose thanks to its north-facing vines. The palate is medium-bodied with good concentration, the 60% new oak just a little too dominant on the finish. Hopefully that will integrate with time.
