If Marsannay gets premier cru vineyards, Clos du Roy will be among the first. It has produced a full, ripe wine that shows rich plum as well as redberry fruits. Structured and with a dense texture, it will age well. Drink from 2022. (RV)
This is aromatically similar to the Le Vaucrain if perhaps a bit more complex where the extra depth also suffuses the sleek, round and delicious medium weight flavors that are a bit more mineral-driven on the firm, muscular and moderately rustic finish. This won't win any awards for refinement but even so it is very good and, to its credit, should amply reward extended keeping.
Aromas of black cherry, currant and truffle precede a full-bodied, fine-grained palate with nice concentration and energy. This should be very nice after a few years in the cellar. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035. (WK)
Light to mid cherry red. Intense aroma of red cherry, even a little floral. Gentle, chewy texture, the fruit so pure and lively. Excellent freshness. 17/20 points. (JH)
The 2016 Marsannay Clos du Roy has an attractive raspberry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet with just a touch of orange blossom lending complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a little dominated by the oak that drives home the svelte if slightly predictable finish. (NM)
