2007 Prince Florent de Merode, Corton Clos du Roi
Medium colour. The nose is a little estery though smooth and red too. In the mouth the fruit is not bad, but it’s quite high-toned to match the estery nose – nice ripeness though and understated tannin too for a Corton. The acidity is fine enough – understated but silky. A wine that is a bit of a curate’s egg; a little estery but it has a comfy texture and decent balance too. Perhaps not a bottle for the long-term(?) but it’s tasty enough today – that said, I’ve the impression that this is more of a good premier cru level wine.
Rebuy – Maybe
