2019 Maison Champy Corton Rognet Grand Cru

Tasting note

Today, I was at Maison Champy in the town of Beaune for a tour of their cellar and a brief dégustation. I didn’t take notes during the tasting, so these are just some quick thoughts on the wines as I remember them.

Noticeably a step up again from the previous wine. Boasting with complexity, but it felt restrained in the glass. Despite 2019 having been a hot vintage pretty much all over Europe, the Corton feels in no way hot or muddled. You can sense the potential that is there. Lovely mix of stones and floral notes (which with more age might well turn into sous-bois) alongside red fruits waiting to be uncovered. Persistent finish. Easily 13-15, just don’t touch it before 2030.

Drink from 2030 through 2040.
