The 2010 Corton Clos du Roi graces the palate with exquisite depth and sheer purity. Layers of seamless fruit emerge from this sublime, totally refined wine. De Montille used two-thirds whole clusters and 50% new oak barrels, but none of that stands out. It is the superb depth and purity of the fruit that elevates the Clos du Roi to its lofty position. This really leaves a strong lasting impression. (AG)
(two-thirds vendange entier; 50% new oak; this and the subsequent wines were tasted from cask): Bright medium red. Slightly high-toned aromas of candied cherry, spices and underbrush. Round, ripe and broad, with a medicinal reserve giving the wine a classically dry aspect. But the wine's red fruit flavors blow by the ripe, building tannins. Not at all a sweet style of Burgundy, but subtle, long and soil-inflected. (ST)
This is also attractively fresh and relatively expressive for a young Corton with ample amounts of sauvage character on the marked floral-infused red currant and plum aromas. There is excellent power, size and weight to the extract-rich flavors that exhibit impressive length on the linear and mineral-driven finish.
