Corton Le Rognet Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes
The plot, exposed full east, occupies 34 acres at mid-hill at an altitude between 270-280m. Two-thirds of the vines are 70 years old, and the last third is 35 years old. This vineyard has been the subject of considerable work to encourage the root system to grow down into the mineral layers of soil deeper below the surface. Located a few kilometers further south than the other vintages, the plot is always harvested two or three days before.
