Winemaker's Notes

The Clos du Roi at Beaune is often mentioned in royal decrees and edicts. For example, the decree of June 21st, 1723 which ordered "the sale and adjudication of the Clos du Roi in Beaune as a covenant and with a perpetual redemption option". This monopole (single owner) vineyard was cultivated and vinified by the people of Beaune, who delivered casks and baskets of bottles to Court at Versailles.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale medium-red. Exotic, inviting scents of red cherry, orange zest, truffle and smoky underbrush. Fat, sweet and rich, with a rather animal, syrah-like quality to its dark fruit flavors. Not particularly delineated but there's plenty of substance here, and adequate energy. Finishes with a soft dusting of tannins. This is already fun to dirnk."
90 Points

"The 2010 Beaune Clos du Roi is gorgeous for its soft, round fruit and accessible personality. Sweet red cherries, crushed flowers and tobacco wrap around the delicate, somewhat fleeting finish. This is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Range 88-89."
