    This highly respected Grand Cru has it all: cinnamon spice, lots of wild dark fruit flavours, mouth-coating generosity, and driving concentration. Incredibly intense and very, very long.

    The 2014 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru has the most expressive nose of the three Cortons from Chandon des Briailles - very succinct with neatly placed red fruit, limestone and oyster shell scents that gently waft from the glass. The palate is taut and linear like its two "siblings," yet there is more substance and depth here, a touch more volume and sweetness towards the saline finish. This will require 4-5 years in the cellar, but it will be worth waiting for. Kingly! Drink 2019-2038

    Now I would be much more prepared to say this has an ‘earthy’ note on the nose. Ripe fruit and brambles…hedgerow. It attacks. The palate is fresh and vigorous; the tannins are firm, relatively finely grained, not burly, but taut and straight and dense. A much more muscular palate; It has an athleticism and there is intention and a strict, more colder more granite finish. Usually I prefer the more refined Bressandes, but I am drawn to the vigour of Clos du Roi this year.

Producer

Domaine Chandon de Briailles

The sibling team at this stunning domaine (Francois and Claude de Nicolay) is most definitely a winning one. Their biggest influence has been to convert the estate firstly to organic and now to biodynamic methods of viticulture and vinification. The wines focus on sensual flavours and refinement, these are not powerful, but the aged vines allow for wines of extraordinary texture and complexity.

Region

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
