“The finest I’ve ever produced,” was how Bertrand Ambroise described his magnificent 2002 Corton Le Rognet. Cassis, blackberries, and toast are found in its sweet aromas. Hugely powerful and robust, this medium to full-bodied wine has awesome power, density, depth, and concentration. Mouth-staining, it conquers the palate with spicy black currants, blackberries, tar, and licorice. This highly structured, ripe tannin-packed wine should easily stand the test of time. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022. (PR)
A completely different style as this is surprisingly fine with obvious elegance and first rate detail. The Ambroise Corton is usually huge, indeed even monster-like yet this is tender, sweet, fleshy and mouth coating with impressive levels of sap and a dry, dusty finish. I like this a lot but I should warn Ambroise fans that it is not stylistically consistent with what has been produced in the past.
Good dark red. Roasted raspberry, leather and game on the nose. Fat, sweet and fine-grained; broad and silky. Pronounced element of baking spices. Finishes very long, with strong, dusty tannins reaching the front teeth. At 14.5% alcohol, this exceeds the 2003. (ST)
