Wine Advocate

89-91 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru, from 65 year old vines, is two-thirds whole cluster with 50% new oak. The bouquet is introverted at first and only gradually unfurls in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite refined tannin, grippy in the mouth at the moment with quite a masculine, lightly peppered finish that should soften if you can leave the bottle to mellow for 3 or 4 years. I am just looking for more panache to come through here." 12/17

Vinous Media

90-92 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media: "(these 65-year-old vines escaped the frost; vinified with two-thirds whole clusters and aged in 50% new oak): Healthy full red. Aromas of cherry and currant show a chocolatey ripeness. Plush and silky in the mouth, but more about volume today than flavor intensity. Red fruit and savory mineral flavors are accented on the broad back end by notes of licorice and herbs; one is aware of the whole clusters here. The dusty tannins reach the front teeth. This wine has a tendency to absorb its wood and stems quickly, noted Sieve, which probably explains why it's a bit out of sorts right now." 1/18
