A very ripe yet still agreeably fresh and beautifully complex nose is comprised by liqueur-like aromas of spice, plum, earth and the classic wisp of the sauvage. There is outstanding richness and concentration to the powerful and mouth coating flavors that deliver seriously good persistence on the impeccably well-balanced finish. This is a big but graceful wine that should also amply repay extended cellaring, indeed it's going to require at least a decade of it.
The 2015 Corton Clos Rognets Grand Cru has a tightly-wound bouquet with a vein of grey slate permeating the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin in the mouth, quite grainy in texture with a strict, quite linear finish, hints of hoisin just lingering on the aftertaste. There is good energy here and it should gain more cohesion by the time of bottling, and may possess the longest aging potential.
(13.5% alcohol): Deep, bright ruby-red. Very subdued but pure scents of black cherry, spices and minerals. Plush and broad but vibrant and delineated too, offering an enticing combination of sweet black fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. Youthfully imploded and not yet showing the personality of the Perrières, yet there's already something seductive about this highly concentrated, extremely primary wine. I can see it enjoying a 25-year life in a cool cellar.
