Corton Grand Cru "Le Rognet" 2009, Bruno Clavelier
This Corton grand cru is located at the northern tip of the Corton grands crus closer to Nuits Saint Georges than Beaune. Tasted at the domaine in April 2011 this recently-bottled 2009 kicked off on notes of oregano and cherry. Still relatively closed. Dates, good concentration, big structure, rich cassis and strawberry fruits. Ripe and savoury. Will be great... in about 6 years time! An impressive, multi-dimensional wine. Worth waiting for.
