Lot #82. Pierre Guillemot Corton Le Rognet et Corton 2009

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: . KLWM.
"The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations (!) and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny’s rustic character. Guillemot is one of the quintessential KLWM producers, with wines that epitomize the local terroir and emphasize grace and elegance over power and structure. But do not be fooled into thinking that this means they lack aging potential; the Guillemots are very proud of their old wines and thankfully have the foresight to set aside a good supply and follow their wines’ development over the years. A recent tasting at the domaine included a 1989 and 1975 Savigny Blanc (that’s 35 years old, everyone!), as well as the ‘90, ‘88, ‘85, ‘82, ‘76, ’72, and ‘64 Rouge. There was not a single tired bottle in the bunch. We challenge anyone to find a better deal on Burgundies that are built to last like these . . . . Corton le Rognet et Corton Grand Cru: Vine Age, 50 Years / Soil Type, Ferruginous Oolite / Vineyard Area, 0.30ha . . . . Fermentation lasts for 15 to 16 days; Wine is fermented in wooden cuves; Regular punchdowns during the entire fermentation (2-3 times a day); Wine is aged in barrel (10% new for premier cru and grand cru) for 18 months; Wine is aged in bottle for 6 months before release."
