Tasting Notes

Corton "Le Rognets" Grand Cru 2018: 100% Barrel; 100% new oak; Average 45 year old vines; This is often recognized among the best of the Corton Grand Crus made. Very ripe dark fruits, leather, earth and toasty oak on the nose; gigantic sappy fruit and weight on the palate; straw, leather, underbrush, sweet oak, grilled meats wrapped in savory herbs; the finish is fruit focused and dense; calcaire braces the opulence and creates freshness that begs for another sip. Outstanding

Winery Info

Crafted by the Burgundy Icon Bertrand Amboise, these wines are among the most concentrated and boldest expressions of Pinot Noir & Chardonnay available in the Cote d’Or today and have been recognized as one of the premier NSG producers since the early 90’s. The domaine dates back to the late 18th century. Bertrand took control of the estate in 1988 after the death of Martin’s (Bertrand’s wife) father and has never looked back. Today Bertrand’s Son, Francois, manages the vineyards (w/Bertrand) & daughter, Ludivine, manages the commercial aspects of the domaine; allowing Bertrand to concentrate on the winemaking. Low yields and ripe skins allow for long, slow fermentations on the skins, sometimes 3+ weeks which is why these wines have more color than most. All cuvees are 100% destemmed. The name on the label represents Francois’s son “Victor” and “Guy- Crescent Fagon”, doctor to Louis XIV and important benefactor to the wines of Nuits Saint Georges. The 21 hectare domaine spread amongst 20 appellations is located in Premeaux-Prissey (the southern side of Nuits Saint Georges) and has been certified organic (Ecocert) since 2013.
