Production area

The Aloxe-Corton appellation covers 119 ha on the territory of the town of Aloxe-Corton and 8.5 ha on that of Ladoix-Serrigny, at the beginning of the Côte de Beaune. Nearly half of the vineyard area is classified as Grand Cru and no less than 17 classified Premier Cru.


There are two types: those located on the Pernand-Vergelesses side and for the one we are interested in, Les Vercots, the parcel is located at the foot of the Corton hill. The soil is deep red clay and compact on diaclastic limestone.


100% Pinot Noir.
