2019 Domaine d'Ardhuy Les Boutieres Aux Valozieres Aloxe Corton
Domaine d'Ardhuy is a Burgundy house that quickly became one of the top 5 producers in the region. Very extensive choice of terroirs, and high quality from the base to the Crus. Gabriel Ardhuy helped with the 1947 harvest in Burgundy and met his future wife Eliane, daughter of a winegrower from Burgundy. They have seven daughters. The d'Ardhuy family has long owned the trading house Pierre André, whose headquarters is Château Corton-André. This will be sold in 2002, so that all attention can be focused on the own vineyards and the development of the own domain. The Ardhuy family owns more than forty hectares of vineyard in great plots and also owns a company in the Rhône. A daughter has been designated to organize it for both domains. At the beginning of 2003, Carel Voorhuis, the son of a lawyer from Maastricht who had previously bought a winery in the Jura, entered as 'régisseur'. And then things move quickly: already in 2004, the Revue de Vins de France chooses Ardhuy as number 3 of producers in the Côte de Beaune and as number 4 in the Côte de Nuits.
The Pinot Noir grapes for the d'Ardhuy Les Boutieres Aux Valozieres Aloxe Corton come from 30 to 60 year old vines located on the southern slopes of the Corton Hill. The soil consists of a compact, heavy clay soil on a subsoil of gravel and pebbles. This clay layer provides a cool substrate for the vines. The vines are oriented east, so that the grapes mainly get the sun in the morning.
The d'Ardhuy Les Boutieres Aux Valozieres is a firm, complex wine, with a delicate nose of black fruit, forest soil and spices. The attack is refined and fruity with firm tannins. Complex and powerful with great aging potential! A classic, powerful Burgundy.
