Beaune Premiere Cru "Clos du Roi" Dom Corton André 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Not only is Beaune one of the leading tourist towns in France, but it is the capital of Burgundy wine and the most famous AOC Communale in the Cote d'Or. The majority of its vineyards are situated on the slopes to the west of the town, and that is why there are so many premier crus in relation to the size of the area (39). "Clos du Roi" can be found on the hills to the west of the town, but the vineyard is actually situated right on the border with Savigny-les-Beaune at the north of the town. This pure Pinot Noir is tannic and well-built, strong in colour with well-developed aromas. The colour is less deep and the wines smoother than comparable wines further south. The nose is sweet but pronounced with notes of small fruits. Ideal served at room temperature (15°C) with roasted meats, red meat and light game.

Château de Corton André looks out across the Corton Hill and is the heart of Pierre André. The Corton Hill vineyards produce truly rare and marvellous Burgundies which are at the very peak of the region's finest wines. It is also unique, in the fact that it produces both Grand Cru red (Corton) and Grand Cru white (Corton Charlemagne) wines. These exceptional Grand Cru parcels of land are the very essence of Pierre André; Corton Chaumes, Corton Renardes, Corton Charlemagne and Corton Clos du Château (monopoly holding). It was in these vineyards that the Pierre André story began and here that we acquired our deep understanding of the secrets hidden in the soil. Today we apply this know-how to all our appellations.
