Description

Les Corbeaux is in the wind corridor of the valley leading to Chamboeuf, and the grapes benefit from the freshness the breezes bring. Uncommonly, around 10% of the vines here are white – Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Aligot‚ – and harvested with the red, which adds lift to the wine. It is rich and ripe, with a typical note of iron, blackcurrants, liquorice, and a smoky spicy edge, as well as fresh mint on the long finish.
