Corton Grand Cru "Clos des Maréchaudes" - Monopole

Domaine du Pavillon


Côte de Beaune


AOC Grand 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 tend 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.


This wine's sophisticated nose harmoniously combines notes of red fruit (cherry, raspberry…) with subtle hints of toast and a whisper of vanilla. Fleshy and powerful on the palate, this wine expresses impressive osmosis between the richness and finesse of its terroir, and a dense, velvety tannic structure. Nice volume and remarkable length on the palate.
