De Montille bought this lovely parcel of grand cru in 2005 from a fastidious vigneron who had looked after the vines with impeccable attention. They have continued his good work with these 80 year old vines. The wine is brimming with sweet ripe fruit and the palate is defined by its silky freshness. Clos du Roi has a reputation as the most elegant of the Corton grands crus, and this is abundantly clear in 2019.
The 2019 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru has a clean, precise bouquet of red cherry and wild strawberry aromas, nicely focused, with pressed iris petals emerging with time. The palate is very well balanced, the two-thirds whole cluster well integrated, with a persistent and very elegant finish. This is how to make a Clos du Roi.
