Domaine Rapet is a family estate with a long history dating back to 1765, which is located in the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. They currently own 20 hectares of vineyards based around the villages of Pernand-Verglesesses, Savigny Les Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, and Beaune, and which also includes the red Grand Cru - Corton. Their wines are characterized by its terroir, richness, fruit components and ageing possibilities, although most of the wines produced at the domaine can be approached at an early stage. The house is currently managed by Vincent Rapet and his wife, Sylvette.
Today we are honoured to present two incredible bottles from Rapet - the Corton Grand Cru 2019 and Corton Pougets Grand Cru 2019. Corton is the only red Grand Cru on the Côte de Beaune, and is planted with 50-year-old vines thus making incomparably rich wines. They are full-bodied, elegant and generous wines with excellent ageing potential offering both power and finesse. On the other hand, the Corton Pougets is located at an altitude of between 250 and 300 meters and comprises soil content beneficial to the growth of Pinot Noir, this Grand Cru brings out the best of Pinot Noir. Both wines use 15 days of fermentation and pigeage, the wine enables to soak up the richness and colour from the grape skin. With 20% of new oak added before aging, the wine maintains its power and richness but adding more complexity into it.

ETA May 2021 94pts Wine Advocate The 2019 Corton Grand Cru has also turned out very well, exhibiting aromas of red berries, spices, forest floor, and orange oil. Full-bodied, layered and perfumed, with fine concentration, powdery tannins, and lively acids, it's elegantly muscular in profile, concluding with a long, sapid finish. As I've written before, this comes from Les Meix and Les Chaumes, lieux-dits below Pougets and just above the village of Aloxe-Corton.
