Tasting Notes

    Lots of red cherry and pomegranate. This is a lovely polished Corton, with sophisticated rounded tannins. It has a feeling of weight, but also exuberant richness, great length and masses of class.

    A more reserved and deeply pitched nose speaks of plum, dark currant and forest floor. As is typically the case, the bigger-bodied flavors are more concentrated, powerful and muscular if less refined on the noticeably firmer and more austere finale. This too is excellent while offering a different expression from the Hill of Corton. Patience absolutely advised. Drink 2034+

    The 2019 Corton Grand Cru has also turned out very well, exhibiting aromas of red berries, spices, forest floor and orange oil. Full-bodied, layered and perfumed, with fine concentration, powdery tannins and lively acids, it's elegantly muscular in profile, concluding with a long, sapid finish. As I've written before, this comes from Les Meix and Les Chaumes, lieux-dits below Pougets and just above the village of Aloxe-Corton.

    Nice and expressive with deep, purple fruit notes and a lovely glossy sheen, this is a very successful wine for Rapet and it’s nice to see that this ripe fruit retains complete control and balance with the oak and tannin elements here.

    From Chaumes et Voierosse and Combes, a well protected site. Flinty soil with nothing , but stones. Rich dense bouquet, much more depth here and a slightly fresher fruit. Deep red fruit, with good tannins too and attractive acidity, this is the keeper of the two Cortons. And rather impressive. 4 stars

Domaine Rapet Père et Fils

Domaine Rapet Pere et Fils can trace its history back as far as 1765. The Estate comprises 18 hectares of vines in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny les Beaune, Aloxe Corton and Beaune. Located between Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, the Pernand Vergelesses vineyard, tucked away in the green surroundings of a quiet valley, begins at the foot of Corton hill. It is the only vineyard to offer the whole range of vintages, in both white and red wines. Ageing of both red and white wines occurs in oak barrels (30% new for white and 20% new for red). All winery processes are undertaken to minimise the handling of the grapes.

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.
