2019 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru, Domaine de Montille

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.

2019 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru, Domaine de Montille


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.

Domaine de Montille

Charismatic Etienne de Montille has stewarded the family domaine since taking responsibility in 1995. With an enviable selection of vineyards, careful winemaking with the use of whole bunch altered to suit the vintage, and sensitive élévage, it’s no surprise that this estate continues to rise towards the top. With a cellar overseen by the talented, affable American Brian Sieve and his own son joining the family business, Etienne is doing all the right things to ensure the wines thrive.
