Tasting Notes

    Burghound, January 2004,
    Score: 90-93

    Burghound issue 13 January 2004A completely different style as this is surprisinglyfine with obvious elegance and first rate detail.The Ambroise Corton is usually huge, indeed even monster-like, yet this is tender, sweet, fleshy and mouth coating with impressive levels of sap and a drydusty finish. I like this a lot but I should warn Ambroise fansthat it is not stylistically consistent with what has been produced in the past. 90-93/2008-14

    Robert Parker, June 2004,
    Score: 94-96

    Wine Advocate #153 (Jun 2004) Drink 2009-2022“The finest I've ever produced,” was how Bertrand Ambroise described his magnificent 2002 Corton LeRognet. Cassis, blackberries, and toast are found in its sweet aromas. Hugely powerful and robust, this medium to full-bodied wine has awesome power, density, depth, and concentration. Mouth-staining, it conquers the palate with spicy black currants, blackberries, tar, and licorice. This highly structured, ripe tannin-packed wine should easily stand the test of time. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022. Importer: Robert Kacher Selections, Washington, DC; tel. (202) 832-9083

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
