Domaine de Montille Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru 1.5L 2019

Burgundy, France
91-94 points


This Grand Cru, Corton 'Clos du Roi,' occupies a prime position along the southeastern slope of the hill. Nestled amidst premier-quality clay and limestone soils, the Domaine's parcel is exceptionally situated at the very heart of this hillside. It is perched just above the pathway that divides Les Bressandes and Clos du Roi.

Corton 'Clos du Roi' stands as a distinguished Grand Cru in its own right. It possesses the essential attributes of exceptional material, intricate complexity, a delicate touch, and profound depth. It's truly remarkable how this wine encapsulates the unique characteristics of its geographical location, drawing from both the Côtes de Nuits (with its complex aromatics and superior tannin quality) and the Côte de Beaune (exuding freshness, vibrancy, and a solid material foundation).


91 - 94 points

An exuberantly spicy nose of black cherry, warm earth and violet betrays only a hint of the Sauvage. The super-sleek and impressively intense larger-scaled flavours brim with both minerality and dry extract before terminating in a very firm, austere and serious finale. This built-to-age effort is also going to need time to further flesh out.

Tasting Profile

Domaine de Montille is known to craft wines with great aromatic purity, always favouring balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, produced in the most natural way possible and possessing an impressive ability to age, as the family believes only time can reveal the true potential of the greatest wines. The Domaine's current style remains faithful to Hubert's natural and idealistic approach, which demanded considerable patience while waiting for appropriate drinking windows for certain vintages. This wine is crafted from 75YO+ vines and uses 66% whole bunch clusters.
