Tasted at the Justerini & Brooks annual Burgundy tasting as one would expect the "Clos du Roy" (the King's Close) is considered to be one of the best sites in Marsannay. This pinot has a good vibrant ruby colour. An appealing, soft nose of red cherry and red plum. Elements of violets and iodine pointing to good phenolic ripeness. Attractive cherry and raspberry fruit on the palate with impressive intensity for a Marsannay. Very good. Scores 23-25/30 for a Marsannay.
