Moderate reduction makes the nose difficult to evaluate though it appears reasonably clear that the underlying fruit is quite ripe. The rich velvety intense and muscular big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that coats the mouth and imparts a velvety texture to the mineral-inflected and impressively persistent finish. This doesn't quite have the sheer depth of the Rognets but it's not far off and this is quite striking in its own right.

Layers of dark red fruit flowers licorice and spices are woven together in this ripe flashy Corton. Personally I prefer the energy of the Rognets but this is very beautiful too. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.

Wonderfully round and sweet with terrific red fruit intensity complemented by a saline nuance. Really dusts the entire mouth. Finishes suave and long with a captivating light touch. This will probably need six or seven years of aging upon release.
