Corkbuzz Online | Burgundy Spotlight: Hill of CortonJuly 7 2021 | 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Join Corkbuzz for a series of new classes focusing on individual villages of the Côte d'Or.
The Hill of Corton lies in the midst of a cluster of famous wine-growing villages - Ladoix-Serrigny, Aloxe-Corton, & Pernand-Vergelesses. The vineyards form a kind of amphitheatre not found elsewhere in the Côte. The Hill of Corton produces white Corton-Charlemagne and (mainly) red Corton, described by Camille Rodier as “le roi des bons-vivants” (or “the king of the bon vivants”). We'll be delving into the history, law, and individual parcels of land that make the wines of these villages so special amongst collectors and enthusiasts. Expect a deep focus on lieu-dits, climats, Premier Cru vineyards, Grand Cru vineyards, and the most iconic (and some lesser known- but need to know) producers.
It can be helpful to have an overall understanding of the region prior to class. You can watch our Burgundy Basics class recording to prepare.
