2017 Corton Grand Cru Clos du Roi, Chandon de Briailles

This stony vineyard, at the centre of the hill, is one of the best sites in the whole appellation. Vines over fifty years old deliver an intensely pure Corton du Roi. In 2017 it is very good with good length, nice energy and impressive purity. Its texture is notable, with a persistent finish - charming, with the stuffing and the finesse one would expect at this address.

2017 Corton Grand Cru Clos du Roi, Chandon de Briailles
Domaine Chandon de Briailles

This beautiful house constructed between 1690 and 1705 has been home to the de Nicolay family since 1834. Current incumbent Claude, frequently flanked by her lovely dogs (one adorably called Darling!), creates elegant wines from appellations sometimes known for their more bucolic styles. Farmed biodynamically since 2005, this is a set of wines that punch well above their weight.
