The 2015 Corton-Rognet Grand Cru has a fragrant bouquet with blackberry, raspberry preserve, crushed rose petals and just a hint of blood orange, quite sophisticated in style for a Corton-Rognet. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy tannin on the entry. This does not shortchange you on fruit: blackberry, raspberry and a pinch of white pepper, leading to a structured and quite grippy finish that like Taupernot-Merme's other 2015s, manages to retain impressive freshness and elegance. It has an incredibly long aftertaste, over a minute in the mouth and you can still feel this. Highly recommended. (NM)
Like the Pruliers the brooding and inexpressive nose is distinctively sauvage-inflected on the earthy and softly spiced red and dark cherry-scented aromas. There is fine richness to the textured and unusually refined middle weight plus flavors that also possess evident muscularity on the stony, intense and beautifully complex finish. Excellent quality here and this is a classic Corton that should age effortlessly for years to come. 2030+
The 2015 Corton “Rognet” is the ripest wine in the Taupenot cellars this year, coming in at 13.9 percent octane, but again, remaining quite cool in the mouth. The bouquet is deep, sappy and quite black fruity in personality, wafting the glass in a mix of cassis, black cherries, dark soil tones, a touch of chocolate, venison, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and plush on the attack, with a rock solid core, refined, ripe tannins and lovely length and grip on the focused and still very primary finish. This will be excellent. 2025-2075.
Good dark red with ruby tones. Very ripe but brooding aromas of kirsch, menthol and crushed stone complicated by a minty nuance. Large-scaled and chewy on entry, then seriously mouthfilling in the middle palate, conveying a powerful impression of extract as well as terrific mineral energy to its very ripe dark fruit and impression of serious extract to its black cherry and dark berry fruit flavors. Already shutting down in bottle but the explosive finishing flavors are hard to scrape off the palate. This should be long-lived. (ST)
