OUR WINES

Corton Grand Cru
« Le Rognet »

High in colour, the Corton offers an intense and velvety wine. Its nose reminds ripe black fruits (blackcurrant, cherry), evolving to animal notes after few years. Its structure, its concentration and its fruit reveal a character which is decided to convince.
