The grand cru hill of Corton is imposing, a complex patchwork of land holdings. There a many lieu-dits that do not live up to their grand cru stature however, a few hold the prestige with pride. Clos du Roi is the benchmark placed smack bang in the centre of the appellation on a mother rock of limestone, facing south-east. Just below Clos du Roi sits Corton-Perrieres with a touch more southerly aspect. A spicier and more expressive nose possesses fine layering with its attractive spice and floral nuances that add breadth to the black raspberry and violet scents. The succulent yet powerful and serious broad-shouldered flavors possess equally good layering before concluding in a firm, youthfully austere, complex and long finish. Unlike the Clos du Roi that could be approached after 5 to 7 years, this will need most of a decade and reward 12 to 15 years of keeping. 91-94 Points. - Allen Meadows, The Burghound
