Corton-Charlemagne

A Legend of Corton-Charlemagne

The story goes like this: Emperor Charlemagne put the first white grape vines on the hills of Corton. He liked red wine a lot, which made his long white beard turn pink. His wife made him to drink white wine instead, and soon, he was often seen liking it. Legend has it that this is how we can get white wines from Corton, and hence Corton-Charlemagne.

Corton-Charlemagne, a big name for white wine from Burgundy, is known for its beautiful fusion of fruity expressions and a mineral undertone. This mineral character is best expressed on the hills that face the setting sun in cooler areas. For discerning wine enthusiasts, the good news is that not only is the quality top-tier, but also Corton-Charlemagne is much easier on your wallet than most other white Burgundy Grand Crus.
