Camille Giroud • Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru 2009 75 cl
The 2009 Corton Clos du Roi is very shut down today. It boasts tons of structure and sheer power. The fruit emerges from behind a wall of tannin just enough to get a sense of what the wine’s ultimate potential might be. This is a big, ripe wine with a lot of vintage character in its fruit, even if the formidable tannin keeps the wine from being fully expressive. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.
