The commune of Aloxe-Corton has the unusual distinction of having over half its area covered in Grand Cru vineyards. It has an exposure ranging from east to south and Southwest.
The Grand Cru vineyard of Les Pougets is directly adjacent to Le Charlemagne climat, on the upper and mid-slope. It is among the five vineyards of the commune in which the variegated soils, alternating between chalk and iron-rich marl, produce both Corton Pougets and Corton Charlemagne.
The harvest is manual in small crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. The grapes are then carefully sorted by hand and then destemmed. The grapes are macerated in open wooden or stainless steel vats for 3 weeks to 4 weeks. The vats are punched twice a day during fermentation. Aging lasts about 18 months in the barrels of our cooperage, about a third of which are new.
