Description

Located on the hill of the Corton Grand Crus at an altitude of 273 meters in an old stone quarry, the 'Perrieres' parcel of vines has a perfect south-easterly exposition. Our Cuverie Corton Grancey is embedded in this terroir. There are brown and red clay soils which produce a delicious and intense wine. The well-aged vines are managed in a traditional way by Domaine Louis LATOUR. Severe pruning allows a later harvest and ensures a good level of maturity and richness in the grapes.
