Corton Grand Cru
“Les Fiètres” White

Aline and Vincent acquired this nice parcel of Corton in 2003,which beautifully complements their range of wines with a Grand Cru. It was initially totally planted with Pinot Noir but they replanted a part of the parcel with Chardonnay and produced the first white Grand Cru bottles in 2008. This appellation is shared between only two producers,that is the reason why it is quite rare.
