The Domaine Follin-Arbelet is located in Burgundy, in the center of the village of Aloxe-Corton. The company was born recently, but the owner, Frank Follin-Arbelet, descends from an ancient Aloxe-Corton family. After his studies in geology, Frank Follin-Arbelet, decides to devote himself to viticulture, first with a small rented parcel, then expands the business by buying numerous vineyards.

wine description

This plot of 0.4 hectares, located on the southern flank of the CORTON hill, in the climat "Le Charlemagne", is cultivated with Pinot Noir and therefore cannot assume the name CORTON CHARLEMAGNE reserved for white wine. This white terroir, of ocher clayey marl, gives this wine great elegance, a lot of finesse and complexity. The always harmonious tannins are ripe and silky. A wine of appreciable pleasure from an early age (3-15 years).

Climate

After a particularly short winter, the months of February and March are almost spring, dry, with even a record of heat for the season on February 27, favoring the awakening and early development of the vines. On April 5th there is a first morning frost followed by four others until May 7th. Winegrowers run for cover by lighting fires to protect the vines. The summer of 2019 is one of the hottest known with two heat waves: one in late June and the other in late July. In some places it will exceed 40 ° C. Fortunately, the month of August brings rains that allow nature to regenerate. The climate is cool at the beginning of September to warm up as the harvest approaches, which begins in the middle of the month.
