Corton Le Rognet 2015 Bruno Clavelier
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
|Condition||In Original Carton|
The 2015 Corton Le Rognet Grand Cru comes from marn soils around 50 meters from Corton Bressandes. It has a deep, more saturnine bouquet compared to Bruno Clavelier's other 2015 barrel samples, sous-bois scents filtering through the dark berry fruit, later a subtle pepper scent, almost akin to Spanish padron peppers! The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, plenty of sappy red berry fruit (cranberry, raspberry and pomegranate) with a structured and quite grippy finish. Perhaps a little rustic in the scheme of things, nevertheless, it has plenty to offer in the long-term.
