Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru "Clos des Maréchaudes"- Monopole

Domaine du Pavillon


Côte de Beaune


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

The name "Maréchaudes" is derived from the name of a vineyard mentioned in the 13th century as "En Mareschaut", which comes from the Old French "maresche" (marshland). The lower part of Aloxe-Corton was indeed marshy due to its proximity to the source of the Lauve river. Major work was undertaken to drain the soil to make it suitable for viticulture.
"Clos des Maréchaudes" is a monopole of Domaine du Pavillon, which is extremely unique in that it boasts 2 levels of appellation, a Grand Cru and a Premier Cru, within the same 5-acre clos (walled vineyard).
The grapes in this plot to ripen early due to its east-southeastern exposure and its location at the foot of the hill, partly on the slope. This is one of the sunniest Climats on the hill of Corton.
The Premier Cru plot occupies the lower part of the vineyard where the soil contains less clay and is a little deeper than in the upper part.


Intense nose revealing scents of red and black fruit (cherry, raspberry, blackberry...) which mingle with elegant notes of mild spices that can evolve towards aromas of tea and cocoa over time.
