A masterpiece of Corton's Rognet plot.
Terroir, production method and maturation: The grapes used for the wine are collected by hand from the Grand Cru plot, which covers 0.4 hectares. The vineyard's vines were planted in 1987. The stems of the grapes are removed and the crushed grapes are macerated in the cold for 10 days before fermentation. The wine ferments spontaneously in steel tanks, after which the wine matures in oak barrels for 15 months. A maximum of 40% of the barrels are new. The wine is not clarified or filtered.
Use: With lightly smoked duck breast and cranberry sauce.
Description: The deep scent features plush wild raspberry, forest floor and dried flower petals. The medium-bodied taste is fruity, the tannins are fine and the aftertaste is lingering.
