Domaine Thomas-Moillard Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru 1993

If you are looking for more information on every Burgundy appellation, the Bourgogne Wines website is excellent.  The link is here.  Clos du Roi is one of the more commonly declared lieux-dits of Corton Grand Cru in the Côte de Beaune.  And here’s an example with 25 years of age on it.  From Domaine Thomas-Moillard, the wine has a light to medium colour, with tawny edges towards the rim.  It opens to aromas of sweet fruit, game, licorice, tertiary tea leaves and old cedar.  The palate is earthy, with high acidity and mid range length and is in a light style.  This is certainly ready to drink and a tertiary expression of pinot noir that is enjoyable, but ultimately past its best.  Rating: Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: na. Website: na
