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. —Emily Spillman
