Legend has it that Charlemagne owned the Corton slope, from which red wines were produced at first. However, the Emperor's wife, who worried about the royal image, rebuked her husband for staining his bear with his favourite red wine. The Emperor ordered the red-grape vines be replaced with white in order to preserve the peace at home all the while indulging his affection for Corton wines.
