Here we have the confusing situation of a producer that produces both 1er and Grand Cru Grèves! What are you going to do? Of course, both are great terroirs in their respective communes. This, the Grand Cru example, is situated mid-slope on the hill of Corton with an ideal southeast exposition and is one of Corton’s finest red terroirs. The soils are reddish clay, peppered with a type of Jurassic limestone known as Ladoix (after the nearby village), as well as some flint. Domaine des Croix purchased a 0.55-hectare parcel of 1960-planted vines in 2009 and has farmed them organically since then. Although a considerably smaller whole-bunch component was used this year (22%), it nonetheless adds to the vibrant freshness that balances the wine’s otherwise deep, fleshy fruit. This will repay 10 years in your cellar. 

Domaine des Croix Grand Cru Corton Les Grèves 2021

Reviews

“Aromas of candied peel, dark berries, spices and forest floor introduce the 2021 Corton Grand Cru Les Grèves, a medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy wine that's framed by sweet, powdery tannins. It's one of the broader-shouldered wines in the range this year.”
91-93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
“22% whole bunch vinification. A bright pinky purple. The 2021 Corton Grèves shows really quite an elegant nose for what can be a massive terroir. Really lovely fruit on the palate in a full fresh red berry style, which makes the raft of tannins at the back unexpected – unless you know the nature of this particular terroir. But the tannins are ripe enough and they will meld with the fruit which is extremely persistent. Drink from 2027-2035. Tasted: October 2022.”
