The 2009 Corton Clos du Roi reveals superb aromatic complexity and delineation, with expressive floral scents that are woven into the fruit. This is intense and powerful, but also marvelously elegant. It is a wine for those who can afford to be patient. The higher altitude of this site helped preserve a measure of freshness, which was quite welcome in 2009.

As is typically the case, this is earthier and much more sauvage than the Bressandes though it retains good freshness and pinot noir character.

As is typically the case, this is earthier and much more sauvage than the Bressandes though it retains good freshness and pinot noir character. The nose speaks primarily of plum and floral aromas that are in keeping with the sappy, rich, powerful and broad-shouldered flavors that drench the palate with dry extract on the very firmly structured and hugely long finish. This should be a great wine in time.

Cellar Selection. A powerful wine, very structured with wood, coffee notes and dark tannins. It feels extracted, although the weight of fruit is certainly enough to handle that. It’s for the long haul, a concentrated wine... Cellar Selection. A powerful wine, very structured with wood, coffee notes and dark tannins. It feels extracted, although the weight of fruit is certainly enough to handle that. It’s for the long haul, a concentrated wine that needs at least 10 years.

93+ Good bright, dark red. Rather wild aromas of black fruits, licorice, fresh herbs and earth; smells powerful! Sappy, sweet and soil-driven, with black cherry, mineral and crushed stone flavors complicated by leather... 93+ Good bright, dark red. Rather wild aromas of black fruits, licorice, fresh herbs and earth; smells powerful! Sappy, sweet and soil-driven, with black cherry, mineral and crushed stone flavors complicated by leather and earth notes. Powerful tannins and an impression of tightly coiled energy rare for a 2009 call for extended cellaring. This powerfully structured wine is even less approachable now than it was a year ago from the barrel. Ripe fruit carries through to the very long finish. Terrific potential here.
