It has a very appealing bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit laced with wilted rose petals, the oak here seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, superb mineralité and a crystalline finish that urges you back for another sip. What and outstanding Corton Rognet. This comes highly recommended. Romain moved from lutte raisonnee to organic viticulture in 2001, with a winemaking approach which is very hands-off. He talks of infusion not extraction, with fermentation occurring naturally with indigenous yeasts before the grapes go into the pneumatic press. The elevage is also simple, with Romain employing mostly two tonneliers–Francois and Mercurey. Ageing is between 12 to 14 months on fine lees and no racking, with Grand Cru wines seeing 40% new oak, 30% for 1er Crus and about 20% for Village wines. Wines are then transferred to stainless steel tanks for 3 month prior to bottling, with neither fining nor filtration.
