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 Aligoté – and harvested with the red, which adds lift to the wine. And it has a lovely energy this year: hard limestone-rich soils give very fresh red fruit, a spicy, bloody quality and firmly delineated ripe tannins.
