2019 ALOXE-CORTON PREMIER CRU. Les Vercots, Domaine Follin-Arbelet.

Bin:  453

Alcohol percentage:  %

Area:

For many Domaine Follin-Arbelet is the best address in the village of Aloxe-Corton in the Côte de Beaune.

The Premier Cru Les Vercots sits at the base of the famous Corton (Grand Cru) hill on the road to Pernand.

Producer:

The Arbelet family have been landowners in Aloxe since the 19th century, including vineyards at one time, but present owner Franck Follin-Arbelet (who has a geology and geophysics background) only started working in the region in 1990. His new wife Christine’s family also owned some vines and by 1993 he was fully established as a vigneron and continued to invest shrewdly in vineyard parcel purchases and rental agreements. Today he oversees 6.5has – and all high quality vineyard provenance. In 2017 Franck was joined in the Domaine by his son Simon.

Vintage:

A warm year this wine remains restrained but there is a core of fine red berry and cherry fruit yet to fully emerge. Very pure, mineral, and medium bodied with a light oak framework, there is an elegance which belies its Aloxe origin (which can sometimes be quite earthy).

Maturity potential:

You can drink now (and would decant and air) but will be better in 3-5 year’s time. This is a serious and authentic red Burgundy.
