Yvon Clerget - Corton "Le Rognet" Grand Cru 2021
Thibaud Clerget took over the family Domaine in 2015; one of the oldest Domaines in the village. The rebirth of one of Volnay’s little treasures then began with six hectares of vineyards located within the best climats of Burgundy. In 2019, Thibaud started a small négoce label to make more varied white wines. He purchases from various vineyards such as premier cru Meursault Les Bouchères, and Corton Grand Cru Le Rognet.
In the 1930s, Le Rognet was one of the first vineyards on the Ladoix side of Corton Hill to be promoted to Grand Cru. Today the vineyard is regarded as one of the best plots on the famed Corton Hill.
Mid crimson, showing a very toasty and lactic style of new wood. Very juicy behind, the whole bunch is almost hidden but I suspect stretches out the finish nicely, and the fruit is not too ripe. Finishes very well, as long as the oak calms down. Actually very long. Jasper Morris. 100% Pinot Noir.
