Corton Le Rognet 2014 Bruno Clavelier
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
|Condition||In Original Carton|
The 2014 Corton le Rognet Grand Cru has a rather conservative bouquet with black cherries, briary, crushed rose petals developing so that is has a more Côte de Nuits-like aromatics profile. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, good backbone here so that it has a typical Corton-like foursquare structure, but the tannins are fine and there is precision and focus on the finish.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
Once again there is lovely purity to the cool, airy and highly complex nose that exhibits a wide range of red berry fruit scents that are trimmed in spice, earth, floral and soft wood nuances. This is easily the biggest wine in the range with plenty of mid-palate volume and richness where the broad-shouldered flavors deliver excellent power and punch on the mineral-inflected, powerful and hugely long finish. Impressive but patience will be required.
