From a parcel of 40 year old vines, Corton really needs to picked when at the the perfect level of maturity – if underripe the wine just doesn’t deliver.

This certainly does, with a herbal, minerally nose backed by some strawberry compote and framboise notes. The palate is nicely balanced, with a mouth-filling core of rich and dense fruits and spices but with a lovely fineness to the tannins. This is more silky and sophisticated than one expects from Corton and really very engaging.

What the critics say:

93-95/100Neal Martin, Vinous

"The 2020 Corton-Rognet Grand Cru has a very well-delineated bouquet, very terroir-driven, crushed stone infusing the red fruit a touch of white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fresh acidity, taut and crisp, gently building towards quite a complex finish with touches of Early Grey infusing the red fruit, cracked black pepper on the aftertaste. Excellent."

91-94/100Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

"Jet black centre with crimson rim, a thick texture of dark plum fruit, a little bit of acidity behind. This also is a little more on the massive side than suits me. Bramble jelly to finish. 14.5% alcohol, which is not uncommon in 2020 Corton. Tasted: December 2021"
