Sweet red berries, tobacco, menthol and licorice blossom beautifully as the wine opens up. Ultimately though, the 2011 is a wine of pure texture. Surprisingly open and expressive for a young Corton, the 2011 will drink well right out of the gate. Fine, silky tannins support the finish in this round, expressive Clos du Roi.- AG

An adroit application of wood frames a strikingly broad ranging nose that features notes of violet, lilac, game, earth, smoke, spice, red currant, cassis and blue berry. The rich, intense and tautly muscular broad-scaled flavors display focused power and plenty of punch though there is less rusticity than is typical thanks to the relatively fine grain of the supporting tannins on the driving finish. This very gamy effort will require 10 years or so to be at its best.
