An essential reference among Burgundy wines, Maison Louis Max, founded in 1859, watches over twenty hectares of vines which are spread over prestigious appellations.
Although the Genevan businessman Stanko Subotić acquired the estate, this lover of fine Burgundian terroir has surrounded himself with illustrious experts such as Jean-François Joliette and David Duban in order to produce fine wines that authentically and excellently express all the potential of these exceptional terroirs.
Louis Max is one of the largest organically farmed and Ecocert-certified estates. The vineyards are managed with the utmost respect for nature and with minimal human intervention. These approaches result in wines that are recognised by the finest international critics.
Louis Max's Aloxe-Corton Village BIO 2019 stems from a vineyard located in the eponymous village, whose name Aloxe meant "stony hillsides" in Gallic. Located to the north of Beaune, this perfectly exposed terroir is planted on clay and marl soils and produces fine Aloxe-Corton wines.
Vinification and ageing
The hand-picked grapes are rigorously sorted before vinification. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 18 months.
Pinot Noir (100%)
Brilliant, the robe reveals an intense dark red colour.
The nose combines fruity notes (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry) and floral notes (jasmine, peony) with a subtle hint of black pepper.
The palate is seduced by this wine’s power, elegance, aromatic richness and silky tannins.
Food and wine pairing
This fine Burgundian wine will complement braised red meats, game served with a sauce, roasted poultry and strong cheeses.

This Aloxe-Corton Village BIO 2019 by Louis Max can be kept in the cellar until 2023-2025 in order to develop its full aromatic range.
