Maison Ambroise ‘Le Rognet’ Corton Grand Cru 2000, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy

Lovely med+ ruby garnet colour. Developing forward yet soft nose of ripe forest dark berry fruit with sour cherries. A dry full-bodied Pinot Noir with high acidity and surprisingly youthful tannins after 10 years. Rich ripe dark berry, blackberry, sour cherry fruit with earthy sweet mocha undertones. Long finish. Perfect with roast chicken and foie gras as the acidity cuts across the heavy weight of fat in the mouth. 95/100.
