Tar, licorice, black cherries, smoke and spices burst from the glass as this exuberant, powerful Burgundy shows off its personality. The 2012 is rich, intense and massively structured, but all the elements are in the right place. Readers lucky enough to find the 2012 should plan on giving the wine a few years in the cellar. Today, the Corton Rognet is striking. In 2012 there are just 4 barrels instead of the typical 7 or so. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Concentrated and vibrant, this pulses through the lingering aftertaste, with dark fruit, mineral and toasty, spicy accents. Best from 2018 through 2032. 100 cases made. — BS collapse

There is good power and plenty of verve to the moderately big-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration on the muscular finish that displays a hint of mocha. The mouth feel is more refined than usual as the tannins are fine-grained and overall, this is a big and firm but well-balanced effort. collapse

The aromatics are consistent with its performance before bottling, the palate achieving perhaps an even higher degree of finesse and composure as that nascent chewiness appears to have dissipated. This delicious Corton Rognet should give much pleasure over the next ten years or more. Drink now-2025+.- NM collapse
