2019 Domaine Méo-Camuzet Corton-Clos Rognet Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1535607 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark in the lieu-dit of Le Rognet et Corton, the vines for Méo's Corton were planted nearly 100 years ago. The fruit is destemmed and gently fermented before ageing slowly in cask (three-quarters new). The spice and smoke from the cask dominates the wine at this point, but behind this there is impressively dense pomegranate and cassis fruit, and a firm mineral note. The texture is firm and tannic, but there is no lack of elegance here. This wine will age beautifully for decades. Drinking Window 2024 - 2049. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Elegant, pure and airy aromas are comprised by spiced red cherry, plum and hints of warm earth, smoked game and pretty spice wisps. The nicely intense medium-bodied flavors are shaped by polished tannins and excellent verve while displaying good focus on the dusty, muscular, more structured and focused finish where the only reproach is a mild touch of warmth. As is usually the case, there is just a bit more overall depth here compared to its two Corton stablemates. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Opening in the glass with notes of dark berries, baking chocolate, forest floor and truffle, the 2019 Corton Grand Cru Clos Rognet is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a bright core of fruit, powdery structuring tannins and a tightly wound, vibrant profile. This is a touch more introverted than the Perrières out of the gates, but this year the difference in degree of reserve isn't as flagrant as it sometimes is. Jean-Nicolas Méo began picking on September 13, observing that "everything was ripe at once this year," and that alcohol levels—for the most part, around 14%—were a little higher than he would have wished for. Yet the wines in the glass are hard to fault: Méo excelled in 2018, and his 2019s are even more structurally refined and vibrant. As I've written before, Méo's wines see quite a long élevage, and they can often be a little structural and introverted in the fall following the vintage, but these 2019s, just like the 2018s at the same stage last year, were remarkably open for inspection. Displaying superb concentration and mid-palate amplitude without any particular perception of heaviness, I found much to admire; and, in summation, this is a very fine portfolio that, when taken as a set, appears to match or surpass what was achieved here in 2018.

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Corton Clos Rognet Grand Cru is beautifully defined on the nose of intense black cherries and blueberry fruit; this is sophisticated and succinctly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins, precise and poised with a fine bead of acidity. Then it shuts up shop toward a finish that feels a bit abrupt at the moment. It deserves 4–6 years in the cellar to reach its plateau. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

94-97pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Clean clear purple, not exaggerated. This is beautifully stylish, harmonious from start to finish and with superb length. I like the way it integrates with its oak, and I love the balance across the palate, while the finish is so very persistent."
