Tasting Notes

Like the Pruliers the brooding and inexpressive nose is distinctively sauvage-inflected on the earthy and softly spiced red and dark cherry-scented aromas. There is fine richness to the textured and unusually refined middle weight plus flavors that also possess evident muscularity on the stony, intense and beautifully complex finish. Excellent quality here and this is a classic Corton that should age effortlessly for years to come.

Score: 94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (69), January 2018

The 2015 Corton-Rognet Grand Cru has a fragrant bouquet with blackberry, raspberry preserve, crushed rose petals and just a hint of blood orange, quite sophisticated in style for a Corton-Rognet. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy tannin on the entry. This does not shortchange you on fruit: blackberry, raspberry and a pinch of white pepper, leading to a structured and quite grippy finish that like Taupernot-Merme's other 2015s, manages to retain impressive freshness and elegance. It has an incredibly long aftertaste, over a minute in the mouth and you can still feel this. Highly recommended.

Score: 93/95Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016

Recently blended and racked prior to tasting. Rich and deep with good raciness. Lots of sweet fruit. Really structured and long. Very sophisticated. Lots of life. Dry end. Drink between 2028-2040.
