Deep bright red. Superripe but rather brooding aromas of black cherry, spices and minerals; much less expressive today than the Clos Vougeot. Then dense and tactile in the mouth, showing superb spicy definition for its sheer size. This seriously rich, deep Corton boasts powerful tannic structure and outstanding palate-saturating length.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2035

The 2012 Corton Clos Rognet Grand Cru explodes from the glass with intense blueberry, blackberry and orange zest aromas that display intent and purpose. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe blueberry and blackberry fruit, hints of cassis and almost a bubblegum-like vivacity on the confit finish. This is still so primal, but it has the vigor and the concentration to merit long-term aging. It represents a great success for the domaine.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2035
