From a north-facing site—rich in flint and clay—which requires careful handling, Julien's 2018 Aloxe-Corton Les Valozières unfurls to reveal notes of cherries, berries, burning embers and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, rich and enveloping, its lavish core of fruit is framed by melting tannins and ripe acids. This is a gourmand, pleasure-bent Aloxe-Corton that will drink well young.
