"90+ out of 100…Tasted blind at the annual"Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Corton Clos du Roi from Domaine de la Pousse d'Or is showing a fair amount of new oak on the nose that needs another couple of years to be subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with a strong saline entry, rounded in the mouth with plenty of extraction, though it requires more detail, more tension on the finish. It just seems rather heavy-handed at the moment although I suspect it will repay cellaring as that carapace of oak melts away." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
"(94-96) out of 100...The 2012 Corton Clos du Roi boasts striking inner perfume and layers of expressive dark fruit, all supported by incisive, yet beautifully integrated tannins. Today the Clos du Roi s understandably tightly wound, but it is a jewel of a wine in the making. Readers need to be very patient here. - Antonio Galloni, Vinousmedia.com
