(BH91-94 points) A discreet application of wood easily allows the fresh, earthy, herbal tea and sauvage-scented nose of red and dark pinot fruit. As one would expect the big-bodied flavors are markedly bigger and more powerful with excellent mid-palate concentration on the beautifully long and mouth coating finish. This is not particularly complex at present but there is so much development potential in evidence that much more should develop with time in bottle.

At once intense and suave, conveying a saline quality to its red fruit and spice flavors. The texture here is essentially pliant and edge-free but this subtle grand cru will need time to resolve its dusty tannins.

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru from Vougeraie clearly has some stem addition on the nose but it works well: the fruit seems ripe and it does not obscure the terroir. The... Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru from Vougeraie clearly has some stem addition on the nose but it works well: the fruit seems ripe and it does not obscure the terroir. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, sour cherry and strawberry with a fine line of acidity threaded through from start to finish, lending focus and harmony. Still a baby, give this 2-3 more years before broaching. Tasted September 2017. - Neal Martin
