The sole Grand Cru rouge of the Côte de Beaune. The vineyard is located
between two villages: Ladoix and Aloxe-Corton. Our Corton Maréchaudes is
an old vineyard of about one hectare with rather slopes just below ‘‘les
Bressandes’’ up the village of Ladoix-Serrigny.
This very old vine of our estate (more than 65 years) is characterised by a
clayey and calcareous soil which is very protected. A rather important
declivity supports a very good drainage.
Hand made harvest crop in small cases. Manual hand selection of each grape
on our selection-tables. Long wine making (fermentation) in open vats
before the pneumatic press. Controlled temperatures are done in our winery.
Maturation in oak barrels for18 months with 20% new oak barrels
CHARACTER AND STYLE
This is a complex wine that is characterized by great finesse. Its brilliant ruby
colour is followed by an expressive nose of red fruits, some undergrowth
nuances and fine spices.
The palate is lively and wild. It reveals the blackcurrant, the gooseberry,
blackberry and cherry. The tannins are firm but melted and never aggressive.
This wine is powerful and subtle; beautifully made, right and classic. The
greatness of the soil of this Grand Cru imposes itself through its persistence
in the mouth that goes up with finesse, complexity and race.
AGEING AND SERVICE
To drink now or to keep 10-15 years. Temperature of service: 15-16°C
A very large pallet of dishes (white or red meats, poultry’s, game and cheeses)
will be able to adapt to this high-class wine according to the age of this bottle.
It will be a great and reference bottle in a few years, which will be able to
accompany the most traditional dishes.
Founded in 1849 by Albert Brenot in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Doudet-Naudin is one of the oldest Burgundy wine Maisons. In 1933 it was acquired by the Doudet family, who have developed and expanded the Maison while preserving its fundamental values: respect for traditions and excellence. Christophe Rochet, the current head of Doudet-Naudin, is committed to maintaining the values of this well-respected Maison while restructuring it.
For almost two centuries we have been producing great wines with a single goal: to reveal and highlight the Burgundy terroir while respecting the values that we hold dear: authenticity and quality.
Domaine Doudet, with over 13 hectares to the north of Côte de Beaune, attests to our expertise. This heritage has great value because of the high quality and diversity of its appellations. The Domaine includes some treasures, such as Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, “Les Maréchaudes” Corton Grand Cru, “En Redrescul” Savigny 1er Cru, etc.
In total 15 appellations are produced, all located around the iconic Corton mountain and the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune.
Domaine Isabelle DOUDET has always belonged to the DOUDET family. Today the 13 hectares of this estate are managed by Isabelle, the third generation of this family of wine-growers. Passionate about the vine, Isabelle is also in charge of the winemaking, bringing her talent and a characteristic signature to these superb wines.
The whole Domaine is worked with controlled yields and environmentally-friendly pest management methods. The organic, pesticide-free treatments are reduced to the bare minimum. We practice light ploughing to preserve the overall balance of the vineyard and its ecosystem.
The Domaine’s vines tend to be relatively old, up to 70 years old for the oldest! A sign of our rigour and attachment to the vine is the fact that certain plots are, even today, only worked by hand or ploughed with horses.
Purchase of intoxicating liquor (contain 1.2% ethyl alcohol by volume) is limited to customers over the age of 18.
