Les Renardes is a vineyard located in Aloxe-Corton, a commune in the Côte de Beaune region of Burgundy. It is a lieu-dit within the Corton Grand Cru appellation. The 14.3-hectare vineyard is situated on the eastern slopes of the Montagne de Corton hill, just below Le Corton, at the northeast end of the commune. It is also adjacent to Corton Le Rognet et Corton Grand Cru in the neighbouring commune of Ladoix-Serrigny.

Les Renardes is characterised by pebbly marlstone soils with rich iron oolite constitution. The unique soil composition is said to impart the rich and gamey character of Corton Renardes wines.

Grape varietal: 100% pinot noir

About the Producer

Château de Charodon is eponymous of the young negociant business founded by Louis Vallet, based in Montagny-les-Beaune, just outside Beaune, Burgundy.

Louis’ resume as a winemaker is remarkable. Besides being in the third generation of Pierre Bourée Fils domaine, where he worked for years, Louis amassed invaluable experience from stints in the Biobio region of Chile, as well as distinguished producers like Pascal Marchand and Bernard Zito.

Louis demonstrates a clear philosophy in staying true to the signature of the vintage, while honing the best potential of the wines. Like his mentors, he prioritises ease of drinking and pleasure, while infusing plushness in the texture.

Château de Charodon offers an expansive spectrum of wines in its portfolio, all of which consistently promise pleasurable, freshness, ready-to-drink experiences.
