Corton Clos du Roi

Grand Cru

Established in vines from the 7th century, it is part of the great Corton en Crutil family, will be entitled to the Clos du Roi Corton appellation until 1930 when Corton Clos Du Roi will become official.

The season begins with a mild and dry winter, leading to an early start to the growing cycle. A significant episode of frost occurred on the Chardonnay on April 5 then on the Pinot Noir on April 14, causing a harvest loss (30% to 50%). A cooling at the beginning of June leads to capricious flowering. This causes runoff and further reduces yields while concentrating the aromas. The hot summer induces water stress in certain places which delays the maturity of the grapes. Because the berries are small and few number, the sugar level in the grapes is naturally high but the lack of water helped maintain good acidity.


Protected by the "Bois de Corton", this terroir is located in the town of Aloxe Corton, with a south / southeast exposure. Rectangular in shape, this east-facing plot rests on limestone Bathonian soil. Rich in ferrous elements and marls which give this wine a structured, wild and concentrated appearance.
