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.
