CategoryGrand Cru appellation since 31/07/1937
Together with Musigny Blanc, the rarest of white Grand Crus. Specifically the climats of Le Charlemagne and En Charlemagne – and they may be blended. There has been a small resurgence for this label from practically zero hl declared in the early 2000s. Most producers opting for the better-known Corton-Charlemagne label, rather than choosing to ‘differentiate.’
