Description

Bright cherry red. Subtle but enchanting dark-red fruits on the nose. Pure and full of life. Delicate texture already, gentle and elegant yet very persistent with a long finish that is both fruit and mineral. Julia Harding MW Jancisrobinson.com (17.5)

The 2017 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru matures in 50% new oak with two-thirds whole cluster fruit. It has a very attractive and detailed bouquet with wild strawberry, raspberry, freshly tilled loam and autumn leaf aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a little chewy on the mid-palate with good substance. This is a solid, though not muscular Corton with fine grip and impressive density on the finish. This should offer long-term pleasure. Neal Martin (91)

  • Delivery Information

The Domaine has practiced organic viticulture since 1995. Today, our wines are certified by Ecocert. Additionally, since 2005,
biodynamic practices have been implemented to show our full respect for these living soils.

Like a dash that connects the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, the hill of Corton relies on its perfect contours and provides the only red Grand Crus of the Côte de Beaune. The "Clos du Roi", known as one of the finest of the Crus of Corton, was an ancient holding of the dukes of Burgundy until the death of the last duke, Charles the Bold, in 1477. The vineyard then became the property of the King of France, Louis XI.

This Grand Cru sits mid-slope on the south-east of the hill and enjoys premier quality clay and limestone soils. The Domaine's parcel is exceptionally well-placed, in the heart of the hillside, just above the path that separates "Les Bressandes" from "Clos du Roi".
