There is no doubt that the Valozières is from Aloxe-Corton; it is a great wine that defines the terroir of this appellation. The vineyard has a deep clay base infused with gravel, with the vines situated mid-slope at a south-southeast exposure, just beneath Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru. The Cornu family own one-third hectare averaging 50 years. A firm, structured wine built to last, there is a sense of more earth than fruit; you can feel the grit in the tannins married to notes of truffle and game. Like the champion it is, it has proven that it will go the distance in your cellar.
