Beaune 1er Cru “Clos du Roi” Reviews

Score: 89 | November 30, 2012 | Wine Spectator
This red evokes black cherry, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors. There's a line of tannins for support, covered by the ample flesh. Drink now through 2020.

With its layers of wood and sweet fruit, this is both well textured and rich. It’s balanced with acidity, giving the wine a tighter edge while also emphasizing the ripe fruit. Keep for a year, but this can also be consumed now.
Score: 90 | October 1, 2012 | Wine & Spirits
A rich, plummy Beaune, this is filled with juicy sweetness in the middle, restricted by smoky tannins in the end. Those coffee-scented tannins remain tender and gentle, creating a mouthwatering finish that keeps you coming back for another sip.

An unusually complex nose for the appellation offers up notes of ripe upper and lower register red berry fruits and warm earth where the latter element can also be found on the rich, full-bodied and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a delicious and solidly persistent finish. A lovely Clos du Roi. 2013+
