2008 Domaine Delarche Corton-Renardes Grand Cru

SKU #1061488

Philippe and Etienne Delarche run a family estate of 9 hectares in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. The harvest is hand-picked and the wines made in the traditional manner. For red wines, the grapes are destemmed, then spend 10 to 12 days in the vat. The cap of skins is punched by hand, then the grapes are pressed. During fermentation, the temperature is constantly checked. The wines are then put into barrels and left to mature for around 15 months. The red wines are concentrated, with lovely color and red-fruit aromas; they are complex and perfectly balanced. Our Notes: "Very nice, very Grand Cru, This shows the foxy character I associate with Renardes. red-fruit in character, with extremely lovely fruit. Lots of structure here, but the fruit is so intense and forward that the tannins are very well robed. Made from a mix of young vines and about 40 year old vines. This is very good Corton!
