2015 Corton Grand Cru “Le Rognet et Corton”

Domaine Pierre Guillemot

2015 Corton Grand Cru “Le Rognet et Corton” Domaine Pierre Guillemot - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Pierre Guillemot, famous for comparing his wine to beautiful women, must have gotten to me when I tasted the 2015 Le Rognet et Corton earlier this year. “Lacy, elegant, silky” are the first three words I scribbled in my notebook, and—forgive me for being stereotypical; yes, yes, of course men can be elegant too—there really is something about this gorgeous wine, with its aromas of strawberry and raspberry and a pinch of pepper, that makes me think of a seductive ’50s pinup. Perfectly inviting right now, but if you can keep your hands off it while it ages, its beguiling qualities will only grow more intriguing with time.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
