One of the sub-sections of the Corton grand cru vineyard, this is situated halfway up the slope on rich clay and chalk soil. This wine is powerful, dense with immense black fruits. Powered by tan nins as well as smoky fruit, the structure is opulent but firm, and set for a good aging. Drink from 2025.
The 2016 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru has a more floral bouquet compared to the Corton-Pougets, crushed violets complementing the blackberry and raspberry coulis aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, nicely focused with great tension from start to finish. It feels grippy and quite structured so try to afford this five or six years in bottle. It is a grand cru after all. (NM)
A more deeply pitched and slightly spicier nose reflects plenty of earth and sauvage characters to the dark berry aromas that are trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is even better size, weight and power to the once again seriously muscular flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the imposingly structured finish that is sneaky long. This too is potentially excellent but it would be absolutely pointless to buy it without an express intent to cellar it.
