CORTON, Burgundy, France
This plot, nestled 270 meters on the hill of Corton, faces the rising sun. The 70-year-old vines take root in poor calcareous soil, with light and very draining soil. This climate and its demanding terroir pushes the plant to its limits and encourages it to give the best of itself: a wine that offers a real presence, a beautiful intensity while retaining its finesse and elegance. When young, Rognet-et-Corton exudes notes of spicy fruit, blackcurrant and kirsch. As it ages, it develops aromas of undergrowth, truffles and leather. It is what one expects from the excellence of a red Grand Cru from Burgundy: the incarnation of the seductive Pinot Noir. This great charmer likes to be desired and is best enjoyed between 4 and 15 years.
