There is a touch of wood present on the otherwise densely fruited spicy and overtly floral nose of black berry earth and anise aromas. The exceptionally rich powerful and prominently muscular broad-shouldered flavors possess an impressive concentration of dry extract that imparts a velvety texture to the long serious and strikingly long finish. But what makes this wine so impressive is just the sheer complexity and at least at this early juncture it is easily the most complex wine in the range.

The 2010 Corton Rognets is striking. Seamless layers of dark red fruit freshly cut flowers and mint are some of the many notes that flow from this impeccable silky Corton.

Seamless layers of dark red fruit freshly cut flowers and mint are some of the many notes that flow from this impeccable silky Corton. This is all elegance and class quite different from the reputation of Corton. The wine needs a few years to absorb its 50% new oak barrels but it is still pretty impressive at present. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.

Juicy and sweet but less expressive today than the Clos du Roi. Terrific dark fruit and floral flavors are given punch by the stem component. Finishes with serious tannins and lingering notes of bitter chocolate and spice. Croix notes that this wine has been graceful and aromatic in barrel since the outset but today it's a bit more sullen.
