Red wine. Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The Clos du Roi premier cur bottling from Laurent Juillot is also planted with a range of vine ages, as the parcels were planted at the same time as those in the Clos des Barraults (1972, 1980 and 1995). The wine sees thirty-five percent new oak during its elevage and the 2017 shows off a marvelously refined bouquet of red and black cherries, a bit of pomegranate, a very complex base of soil, a lovely mix of gentle spices, pigeon, fresh thyme, bonfire and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, tangy and structured, with excellent mid-palate depth, fine focus and grip, ripe tannins and a long, vibrant and still very youthful finish. This will be the best of a very, very strong range of premier cru reds from Laurent in 2017, but it will also need the most time in the cellar to blossom. 2027-2065+." — 92+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
