The 2010 Corton Clos Rognet is a bit richer, rounder and sweeter than the Perrieres. It fleshes out nicely in the glass with sweet dark red cherries, flowers, minerals and spices. This is a relatively delicate, feminine Rognets. The fruit gains considerable volume through the finish without ever losing its underlying minerality. This is first-class juice all the way. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.
This is slightly riper and decidedly more complex than either of its two Corton stable mates with a broad ranging nose of plum and dark berry fruit that is liberally laced with sauvage and earth notes. This is a big wine with rich and very concentrated large-bodied flavors where the supporting tannins are buried beneath an impressive reserve of dry extract, all wrapped in a long, deep and powerful finish. Along with the Echézeaux, this may be the most overlooked wine in the Méo portfolio which I find quite curious given how consistently it delivers.
