After the ravages of the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century the Latour family took the decision to tear up the dead Aligote and Pinot Noir vines and to replace them with Chardonnay. The Corton-Charlemagne vineyard is situated in the prime area of the hillside of Corton where its southeasterly aspect ensures maximum exposure to the sun. The fruit is harvested as late as possible to guarantee maximum ripeness.
