About professional Ratings
Aloxe-Corton is the home village of the Latour family who have been closely involved in the affairs of the commune for over three centuries. Of the total hectarage of this Premier Cru, the Domaine Louis Latour control over 90% of production centered on the famous Chateau and cuverie of Corton-Grancey. These vines are an important part of the Domaine Louis Latour. The name "Les Chaillots" refers to the stony, pebbly nature of the soil in this vineyard, as "caillou" means pebble in french. There is an alliance in the wines of Aloxe-Corton between the finesse of a Côte de Beaune and the mellow, powerful appeal of the Cote de Nuits.
Of a deep ruby color, Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Les Chaillots" 2017 offers a complex nose mixing aromas of black cherry, coffee, undergrowth, and licorice. The palate is smooth and velvety. An elegant wine with light toasty notes and mellow tannins.
