Wine of Aloxe-Corton appellation
Established in 1938, the Aloxe-Corton AOC and Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru links the Côtes de Nuits with the Côte de Beaune to which it belongs. The Corton hill signals a change in landscape. Towards Beaune, the land becomes more rounded, its sharp contours giving way to gentle valleys. The appellation covers the communes of Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny. It has 13 climats classified as Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru. These are parcels which are precisely demarcated, distinctive for the quality of their terroir. 

A cross-section of the Corton hill reveals a classic geological picture. At altitudes of between 200 and 300 metres altitude, the soil is reddish brown with lots of flint nodules, flint-limestone debris ("chaillots"), or loose earth, rich in potassium and phosphoric acid. The Aloxe-Corton vineyards face due east. The wines from the northern sector are more tender and fruity and those from the southern sector, firmer and more complex. The pebbly soil creates supple, elegant wines; while clay and marl breeds firmness and complexity. 

The grape variety used for the wines of Aloxe-Corton and Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru is the Pinot Noir. The white wines, very rare in this appellation, are made from Chardonnay. In this appellation, Domaine Chevalier Père & Fils and Domaine Antonin Guyon set themselves apart.
