Franck Follin-Arbelet bottles a pure, unadulterated expression of Aloxe-Corton’s terroir. Only a few lucky growers work this holy plot, a small clos in front of the Aloxe church in the center of town. Franck’s style brings out its charms and presence faithfully. His reds ferment naturally in old wooden vats, and are then racked by gravity into barrel for a long and patient élevage in the domaine’s deep, cool cellar. With a total purity of flavor enhanced by subtle hints of earth, Clos du Chapitre graces the palate with the utmost finesse. While still tightly wound, its sensuous texture and silky-fine tannins impart a graceful, ethereal harmony to the wine. Follin’s wines are le vrai Pinot, one of the holy grails for wine lovers, Pinot as it can only be produced here in Burgundy. –Dixon Brooke
