Domaine de Montille Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru 2012
2 May 2020
One of the better red burgundy producer, I was relatively impressed with their Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens, thus I did not hesitate to try out their Grand Cru when I was given a chance. There was a strange bouquet, with very faint celery stalks hitting me right at the start, followed with ripe and matured fruits. Content was very ripe and forward, big and chunky fruits gave a very robust mouth feel. I realized I do enjoy the 2012 vintage as I do prefer the ripe and forward style of the vintage, thus this red burgundy suits my profile. There was still a lot of tannins in the background even with my 1+ hour decanting, the tannins were still prominent. Age it another decade will be good.
