In contrast to the nose of the Bressandes this is more obviously wooded and while it's not enough to dominate the more overtly sauvage-inflected dark berry fruit, earth and spice aromas, it's not subtle. There is outstanding density and even more muscle present on the even bigger and richer flavors that also possess a velvety mouth feel thanks to the copious amount of dry extract present on the sappy, complex and very serious finale. This is a big wine with firm tannins to accompany it yet the extract is such that it should be more than capable of not only absorbing the wood treatment but buffering the tannic spine as well. Note well though that this is not a wine to drink in its youth.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, January 2016
(ST91-93 points) Medium ruby. Black cherry, licorice and crushed stone on the nose, complicated by a smoky nuance. Lusher and broader than the Bressandes but nicely delineated as well, delivering a burst of black cherry... (ST91-93 points) Medium ruby. Black cherry, licorice and crushed stone on the nose, complicated by a smoky nuance. Lusher and broader than the Bressandes but nicely delineated as well, delivering a burst of black cherry fruit. Finishes firmly tannic, focused and subtly long, with terrific energy. A very graceful Corton grand cru.

(WA90-92 points) The 2014 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru comes from 1.45 hectares of vine planted in 1979 and 1987, and it matured in 30% new oak. This offers more red berry fruit on the nose compared to the Corton-Bressandes, perhaps more generous and rounded, softer even. The palate is again very supple on the entry with quite rich black cherry and raspberry confit notes, with hints of raisin and fig in the background; it is a grand cru that just wants to give. I would have preferred a little more restraint on the finish, but it is certainly a Corton that will satiate the senses. - Neal Martin
