Top value 1er Cru Red Burgundy in its prime
07 April 2021

The more you get to know the complex region that is Burgundy, the more it shocks and astonishes. One such surprise lies in the centre of the often overlooked village of Aloxe-Corton, in the Clos du Chapitre. This is the home of a rare beast – artisanal 1er Cru Red Burgundy that can be laid down for 10 -15 years for under £40 per bottle all in. Franck Follin is the architect, who produces an atypically seductive rendition of 1er Cru Aloxe Corton.

A Clos at the centre of the Aloxe-Corton village, Chapitre is an early ripening site with stony limestone-influenced soils where clay is far less dominant than it is in the rest of the commune. The grapes achieve full ripeness readily, yielding wines of elegance and harmony, quite unlike anything else in the appellation. This youthful roundness and charm means that the wines can be approached three or four years after the vintage, but also boast a remarkable capacity to age well in bottle for a good 10 – 15 years.
