In our cellars, Corton represents silkiness, smoothness and authority. Its vines produce a robust wine with astonishing ageing capacity. It is always very mature and therefore offers us sweet aromas and a well-rounded texture; its structure is sometimes pronounced in the finish. Even if this wine may appear to be generous, it nevertheless commands respect.
The 2014 Corton Clos Rognet Grand Cru, which has been part of the domaine since the 1930s and according to Jean-Nicolas Méo was picked a little earlier than usual, has a detailed and mineral-driven bouquet that unfolds nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and minerally, fine definition with a sustained, lightly spiced finish. Vibrant and tensile, this is a superb offering from the domaine and is highly recommended.
