"The Les Carrieres cuvée is the “yin” to the “yang” of its neighbor, the Bois Roussot. It usually carries a touch less depth to its color, is a bit more high-toned, always intensely aromatic, with a spice-driven fruit;all in all, a wine that always makes us hungry; its grace can be deceptive as there is plenty of backbone. The vineyard sits next to the Grand Cru Corton parcel of “Le Rognet et Corton” and just adjacent to the 1er Cru “Bois Roussot”. The vineyard is laced through with a mix of gravel and stone providing excellent drainage and sun-absorbing capacity. After a racking into barrel, this wine rests for eighteen months in small oak with about 20% of that oak being new. We have the privilege of purchasing about 360 bottles per vintage." -Supplier notes
