Notes from the Winemaker:

The plot, facing east, occupies 34 acres mid slope between 270 and 280 m. It consists for two thirds of vines 70 years and 35 years for the remaining third. The vine recovery in 1999, has been an important work to encourage the root system to re-explore the mineral soil depth. Located a few kilometers further south than the other wines, the plot is still harvested two or three days before.

This grand cru (red) of the Cote de Beaune has a significantly different expression of other wines from the estate located in Cote de Nuits. Marly limestones of Oxfordian softer, more altered, which form the basis of the soil give the wines of smooth, polished tannins and acidity more recessed. Corton Grand Cru The Rognet offers a velvety material (peach, candied fruits, figs) and ample charm, punctuated by smoky (ham Patanegra) and animated by a fine minerality stretching the final.

Ratings & Reviews

92-94 Points - Vinous:
"Bright red. Enticing floral lift to the aromas of raspberry, cherry, blood orange and earth. Sappy, spherical and sweet, showing superb mineral tension to the flavors of red cherry, red berries, fig and earth. Wonderfully balanced for Rognet, which can be high in alcohol. Finishes bright, stony and very long, with a suggestion of oyster shell. Should evolve very slowly." - Stephen Tanzer (November 2014)

90-94 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Here the nose is distinctly different as it combines overt sauvage scents with those of pomegranate and dark cherry liqueur aromas, all of which is trimmed in plenty of warm earth nuances. There is fine volume and plenty of power to the muscular, powerful and robust big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration as well as impressive persistence. What this doesn't have, at least not yet is the outstanding depth and thus my predicted range is somewhat wider than it usually is. The requisite underlying material does appear to be in place so that this additional complexity can develop and I am optimistic that it will in time." - (Jan 15, 2015)

91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Corton Le Rognet Grand Cru has a very focused and delineated bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and mineral scents - a touch of the old sea cave here. The palate is more red fruit than black-underpinned by fine tannin, hints of brown spice and cloves emerging toward the finish that fans out with some panache. This is well worth seeking out - a succinctly crafted Corton Rognet that should give a couple of decades worth of pleasure." - Neal Martin (Jun 2015)
