2016 Domaine Louis Jadot Corton Grand Cru "Clos du Roi"

SKU #1397534 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of the sub-sections of the Corton grand cru vineyard, this is situated halfway up the slope on rich clay and chalk soil. This wine is powerful, dense with immense black fruits. Powered by tannins as well as smoky fruit, the structure is opulent but firm, and set for a good aging. Drink from 2025. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A more deeply pitched and slightly spicier nose reflects plenty of earth and sauvage characters to the dark berry aromas that are trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is even better size, weight and power to the once again seriously muscular flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the imposingly structured finish that is sneaky long. This too is potentially excellent but it would be absolutely pointless to buy it without an express intent to cellar it. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru (Maison Louis Jadot) was purchased as wine, rather than vinified by Jadot, but they clearly have a good source, as it has turned out very well in bottle. Aromas of succulent wild berry fruit, bergamot and grilled squab introduce a full-bodied, ample wine with velvety tannins, succulent acids and a fleshy, enveloping core of fruit. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
