History: Pascal Maillard is one of Burgundy’s friendliest and most down-to-earth winemakers. He crafts particularly well-priced wines with juicy, fruit-forward personalities from his 20-hectare domaine in Chorey-lès-Beaune. Pascal is expert at bringing charm and appeal to an appellation with a reputation for hardness. Likewise, his Aloxe-Corton has beautiful fruit without sacrificing intense minerality.
Tasting Note: An opulent and ripe, red wine with flavours of strawberry fruit. Wonderfully expressive and powerful in the mouth it finishes with soft silky tanni

“Juicy, fruit forward wine with intense minerality.  Great value from Pascal Maillard. Pan fried venison or Provencal lamb the perfect meals to go with.”
