Complicated ‘patchworking’ is imposing on the Grand Cru hill of Corton. There a many lieu-dits that don’t live up to their grand cru stature. However, there are a few that hold the prestige with pride. Clos du Roi being the benchmark, placed smack bang in the centre of the appellation on a mother rock of limestone, and facing south-east. Just below Clos du Roi sits Corton-Perrieres with a touch more of a southerly aspect. "A notably ripe nose of roasted dark berry fruit and earth lacks a bit of freshness. The broad-shouldered and overtly powerful flavors possess slightly better freshness on the palate while exhibiting a touch of mocha on the suave, round and sappy finish. I wonder if this was affected by the recent bottling as it seems somewhat tired and a bit flat. The question that I cannot answer is whether it will recover a better sense of freshness."
