Red wine. Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The Clos du Roi is one of four premier crus the Rapet family has in the village of Beaune, as they also have vines in Bressandes, les Cents Vignes and Grèves. The family’s parcel Clos du Roi was replanted after the winter freeze of 1985 and the vines are now more than thirty years of age and well into their prime. The wine is raised in twenty percent new wood and comes in at a svelte (for 2019) 13.5 percent octane. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a fine blend of red plums, cherries, pigeon, a touch of spice, gentle notes of whole clusters, a fine base of soil and a gentle framing of new wood. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and youthful, with a fine core of fruit, lovely soil undertow, ripe, buried tannins and a long, vibrant and nascently complex finish. This is already nicely soil-driven in personality, but it is still a young wine and will reward patience." — 90+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Celler #97 (January / February 2022)
