2016 Aloxe Corton `Les Valozières`
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Nuits
- Domaine Gérard Julien et Fils
With classic Burgundian clarity part of Valozières is 1er Cru and part is village. Etienne`s plot is the latter but borders the former. His lush style of fruit is a perfect foil for this often austere appellation and this is a delight. If only all Aloxe was this good. Quality tannins and delicious juicy fruit. Yes please.
`Very juicy with a richly constituted fruit – focused and invigorated by a nice acidity. The 2016s do offer a airy feel not found in the more dense 2015s. Keep the eyes open for Aloxe-Corton below the Grand Cru hill. Very Good (88 – 89p)`. Steen Öhman, Winehog
