Maison Champy Corton Le Rognet Grand Cru

AOC Corton Grand Cru, Burgundy

At the North of the Côte de Beaune, the Mountain of Corton brings the villages of Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses and Ladoix-Serrigny. The vineyard ranges between 250 and 330 meters above sea level, forming an amphitheater without any other example in the Côte. The Corton Grand Cru is mainly red in 90 ha and can bear the name of its climate, numbering 25, such as Les Perrieres, Les Combes, Clos des Meix, Bressandes, Le Rognet, Les Renardes, Le Clos du King, ... Our House has 0.33 ha of this appellation.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful deep ruby color with garnet reflections. The nose is frank and concentrated, with notes of black fruits (cherries) on a slightly smoky and spicy (black pepper) background.  The attack is fresh, the body strong and opulent, with tannins but coated.  Nice length in the mouth on a slightly vegetal finish.

It will enhance the rich and concentrated dishes: hare stew, rooster with wine, and cheeses of character : Chambertin, Epoisses, Livarot, etc.

Cold maceration. Fermentation using natural yeasts in vat taking place over 3 weeks. Aging in barrels (30% new) for 14 months.

100% Pinot Noir

    Wine Spectator, May 2019

    "Monolithic, offering a glimpse of ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit and showing lots of spicy, toasty oak notes and a hint of vegetal character. Tightens up on the finish now, yet this is long and promising. Best from 2023 through 2045.—"
