Product Description

20 per cent whole bunch, 20 per cent new oak. At an average of 60 years, the Domaine's oldest vines lie in the Clos du Roi, a vineyard high on the Corton slope and sitting firmly on a layer of limestone mother rock from the Bathonian period. It's these rocky origins and the aspect of the site that produces a more imperious, sophisticated style of Corton (than both Bressandes and Maréchaudes) and a wine whose class shines through in its remarkable length. Not without reason did Louis XI confiscate this vineyard for his own purposes and it remained as the Clos du Roi (vineyard of the king) until the French Revolution three centuries later.

"As is usually the case this is much more obviously sauvage in character than either of its two grand cru stable mates. The reticent nose grudgingly offers up notes of spice, floral elements, smoke, tea and a mix of red and blue pinot fruit aromas. The palate impression is quite rich with plenty of dry extract that buffers what are the ripest tannins in the range, all wrapped in an intensely mineral-driven and hugely long finish. This is by far and away the best wine here."
