2017 Corton Rognet Grand Cru, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

From a plot close to the celebrated Clos de Cortons Faiveley. Love the dark fruit, energy and purity. So much tension here, really silky and fine on the palate. A benchmark Corton.

2017 Corton Rognet Grand Cru, Domaine Taupenot-Merme
Domaine Taupenot-Merme

In the words of Neal Martin in The Wine Advocate, this is “a domaine that has improved immensely in recent vintages, armed with an impressive array of holdings and fashioning classic, restrained Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs.” We don’t disagree. Eponymous winemaker Romain Taupenot is a delight to taste with, candid and engaging, and his wines are equally delightful. They’re a lesson in the reasons why sensitive handling of great vineyards leads to equally great wines.
