2013 Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru “Les Vercots”

Domaine Follin-Arbelet

2013 Aloxe-Corton <i>1er Cru</i> “Les Vercots” Domaine Follin-Arbelet - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Here at KLWM we’re extremely lucky to work with a group of vignerons from Burgundy that makes it virtually impossible to play favorites. Still, in my opinion (or I should say “in my taste”), the traditional, lean, elegant Burgundies chiseled by Franck Follin make it onto the podium of this long, delicious list.
This Aloxe-Corton will show you why: Violet, strawberry, rose petals, sour cherry, pine, dried herbs, hollyhock . . . the wine is multilayered, complex, and profound. It has beautiful minerality and nice texture and without a doubt will continue to grow and bloom if you let it age for a few years—or a few dozen. –Julia Issleib

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.

There is so much contained in a glass of good wine, It is a gift of nature that tastes of man's foibles, his sense of the beautiful, his idealism and virtuosity.
