2018 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Corton Grand Cru "Clos du Roi"

SKU #1537119 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A bold and spicy nose full of black pepper, black cherries and clove which combine to give a soft savoury and fruity expression. Such vivacity and life force on the palate, the wine just jumps out of the glass, mouthfilling but with a lightness of touch and soft chalky tannins. Touch of oak gives structure and elegance to the bright cherry and raspberry fruit. From a 1.4 hectare clay-limestone plot, 50% parcel was planted in 1979, the other half in 1987. The wine is aged on the lees for 16-18 months, of which 12 months are spent in oak barrels. Organic and biodynamic farming. Drinking Window 2020 - 2038. (GH) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A prominently earthy and sauvage-inflected nose reflects notes of black cherry, plenty of spice and an attractive range of floral characters. The intense, broad-shouldered and tautly muscular flavors possess a slightly finer texture and more evident minerality on the clean, linear and serious finish. This needs to add depth to achieve the upper end of my projected range. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

92-95pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Bright dense purple. This has a rich plummy nose that has possibly caught the sun a little. Beautifully succulent wine with a density of ripe glamorous red fruit, some peonies too, but it finishes fresh. Really quite different in style to the silkiness of Bressandes, but also very good. Tasted: December 2019."
