Comes from a Premier Cru vineyard at the top of the hill of Corton. On the other side of the same hill sits Corton Charlemagne and the red Grand Cru Corton Rognet is a few steps south. It’s a very nice neighborhood. Grechon sits on the top of this star-studded hill, with the thinner soils that come with more elevation. The soil composition also has a lot in common with the aforementioned ‘Corton Charlie’, being composed of white marl over limestone with some Chablis-esque oyster shell fossils in the mix. The vines here are over 50 years-old and strictly limited to a very modest yield of 35 hl/ha. The Chardonnay grapes are hand harvested, see partial malo-lactic fermentation and a nine-month sojourn in oak, only 10% new. We can’t compare it to other vintages since we have not seen the wine before, but you know we are huge fans of the white Burgundies from 2014 in general.
