Stephen Tanzer: 90
"Very good medium-deep red. Aroma of crystallized black cherry. Large-scaled, supple and sweet, with substantial palate presence. The acids are not particularly aggressive, nor are the chewy tannins out of balance with the wine, yet this seriously structured wine still seemed rather musclebound. Still, the very long, sweet aftertaste promises an outstanding bottle." (Apr 1998)

Producer notes:
In our cellars, Corton Clos Rognet 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.

This wine's capacity to keep is astonishing and its longevity sometimes surpasses that of the 'grands crus' of the Côte de Nuits. Old vines on a very fine terroir, no doubt. It's often one of the last wines to be drunk in any given vintage.

The vines are in perfect harmony with the stones: venerable… They were planted in the 20s with a selection which matures very early and which produces small cylindrical grapes, which could illustrate the chapter on 'pinot fin' in a viticultural manual.
