(Clavelier's parcel of old vines lies above the Musigny of de Vogue):  Redcurrant, iron and flinty minerality on the nose.  Penetrating, mineral-driven wine with terrific density of material and a distinctly saline character.  Finishes chalky, sappy and very long.  This is 13% natural alcohol.  Always an excellent cuvee.  (My sample of the Corton Le Rognet Vieilles Vignes had just finished its malolactic fermentation and had too much lees in suspension to assess with confidence.) Tanzer 92-95

This is arguably the most elegant wine in the range with its ultra-pure aroma of essence of red pinot fruit, wet stone, anise and dried floral scents. There is an intense minerality to the beautifully well-detailed medium weight flavors that possess a lacy mouth feel yet culminate in a serious, chalky and muscular finish. This delivers flat out terrific length and I really like how the finale fans out. In a word, brilliant. Burghound 92-94 Sweet Spot Outstanding!
