Corton-Charlemagne is an eminent white wine appellation in Burgundy, France, located on the majestic slopes of Corton. Within this extraordinary environment, spread over the municipalities of Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix-Serrigny and Pernand-Vergelesses, white wines are produced exclusively from the noble Chardonnay grape. The complexity of the terroir, with soils of limestone and clay, and the ideal exposure to the sun, contribute to the outstanding characteristics of Corton-Charlemagne wines.
Corton-Charlemagne wines exude depth, elegance and richness. The slow-ripening grapes in this temperate continental climate develop aromas of white fruit, floral notes and subtly layered minerality. The wines are characterized by their excellent structure, fresh acidity and impressive persistence. Within the appellation, specific parcels have been designated as Grand Cru, a pinnacle of prestige and quality in Burgundy. Corton-Charlemagne embodies the essence of terroir-driven wines, where history, climate and soil come to life in an exceptional and timeless expression of Chardonnay.
