2013 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru “Clos du Chapitre”

Domaine Follin-Arbelet

2013 Aloxe-Corton <i>1er Cru</i> “Clos du Chapitre” Domaine Follin-Arbelet - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

It is hard to think of anyone making more compelling, classic, archetypical red Burgundy than Franck Follin. I’m amazed, Franckly, that we have any of his wine available to sell. Aloxe-Corton is a wine of breed and needs time to develop, so it is not necessarily an easy wine. Franck is wonderfully suited to the task. Thoughtful, unaffected, calm on the surface—but calm waters can run deep, and he has a passion for his craft. His quiet intensity and ability to focus and block out all noise deliver the type of sensational Burgundian experience that we all dream of.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
