Corton Blanc

Grand Cru

Corton Blanc comes from the east side of Corton.  It is a rare wine, from the area of Corton Bressandes, which is mostly red wine territory.  There are also some white vineyards, “white” and not chardonnay because a little Pinot Blanc is found planted everywhere.  The Pinot Blanc gets riper than the Chardonnay, but the chardonnay stays firm like a Corton because of the limestone.  Thus the wine has both a crispness from the Chardonnay and sweetness/ripeness from the Pinot Blanc.
