Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

One of, if not THE, great vineyards of Corton's hill, aged in 30% percent new oak and half of it was fermented with whole bunches, giving great depth, structure and complexity. This may be one of the more brooding wines of the cellar but its stellar potential is clear, rich, intense svelte but muscle-bound, sweet asian spices, currant, bilberry, black cherry and bramble fruit with hints of kirsch and savoury touches of mineral, powerful but sweet as a nut on the huge finish.

Notes
The 2009 Corton Clos du Roi is quite deep and intense. It shows terrific intensity in its fruit, along with plenty of structure to support aging. I especially like the way richness of the fruit carries through to the finish. This virile, imposing Burgundy needs a few years in bottle to settle down. The Corton Clos du Roi was made with 100% whole clusters and was aged in 50% new oak, the highest percentage the estate uses.

Domaine de Montille

Domaine de Montille

Etienne is one of Burgundy's great purists, his long-lived wines may need time but they are some of the most honest and terroir-driven wines in Burgundy. The wines are fermented using all or partial whole bunch vinification depending on the vintage, élévage is long and slow in their cold cellars and percentages of new oak are low, rarely more than 50% even for Malconsorts. From some of the most vivid, intense Beaune's there are to perfumed, stylish Volnays and silky Vosnes Romanee, Etienne makes a borad range of some of Burgundy's most polished wines. The Domaine's policy on white wines is to pick as early as possible, as soon as the fruit has just approached ripeness, resulting in tense, fine wines with alcohols rarely more than 13%
