Domaine Dubreuil Fontaine Corton Clos du Roi 2014
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote d'Or|
|Brand||Domaine Dubreuil Fontaine|
This wine is a ruby color that is silky with some garnet red. A very complex aroma of small red and black fruits (raspberry, strawberry, blackcurrant, blackberry) flowers and spices. The taste is sturdy without losing its distinction. Solid and structured body which allows a good ageing potential. Match with game and matured cheeses.
"Also tight but with a faint floral note. Big in the mouth, with more dimension of flavour – in all directions! – sweetness of mouth-watering fruit, long, long, long. Easily the best wine, but also most certainly to wait for. Very yum!" Burgundy Report
The 2014 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru come from vines that were planted in the 1960s and over the last six to ten years. It has a refined bouquet, quite floral with wilted rose petals infusing the citrus-fresh, red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very tensile and focused, and there are tons of minerals towards the finish that is detailed and precise. This should turn out to the best of the domaine's three Corton Grand Cru.
