Justin's Tasting Note: "An elegant wine with a character all of its own! Bright, vivid, red colour. Intense and fruity nose where notes of wet undergrowth and wild nature can be detected. Fleshy and well structured on the palate. A little chunky in its youth, it becomes rounder and delicious to drink as it gets older. Very flavourful aftertaste." Jancis Robinson Wine Reviews : 15% new oak. Not as immediately aromatic as the Bourgogne Pinot Noir but lovely and juicy on the palate. Light tannins, just a little chewy. Has more depth but less fragrance than the Bourgogne. (JH) Drink 2021-2024.

Le Clos du Roi is a climat of the Corton Grand Cru appellation in the Cote de Beaune district of Burgundy. This walled site is located high on the eastern slopes of the Montagne de Corton hill, and is characterized by pebbly, marlstone soils rich in iron oolite. Wines from the Clos du Roi are known for having an excellent balance of power and finesse. #burg15
Winery Notes: The reds are quite dark in colour, their shades varying from deep rubythrough crimson to garnet. While young, the wine’s aroma suggests a spring garden with small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry) and black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). These intensify with age and evolve into peony and jasmine, preserved and brandied fruits, pistachio, prune, leather, truffle, mushroom and cinnamon. The deep soil begets a vigorous, full-bodied Pinot Noir, robust yet refined. Tender and fruity, this wine reaches its peak after 3 to 5 years in the cellar, revealing a firm and well-built body, richly chewy and with pleasing tannins.
