). Les Grandes Lolières is a vineyard in the large Corton Grand Cru. This Pinot Noir shows a delicate balance between fine structure and beautiful red-fruit flavors. At the same time, it has weight and richness that lend this wine power as well as the chance to age for many years.

But those fruits are going to push through, bringing new wood flavors along. The aftertaste is of pepper as well as acidity.
