2008 Prince Florent de Merode, Corton Clos du Roi
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has a little rhubarb and a faint orange character – not exactly ‘comely’ though I suppose it reflects quite a few from the vintage. Eventually there is a dense red fruit aroma. Intense, very decent concentration – even for a GC – very good but far from over-done acidity. Understated tannin and the flavour is rather good, certainly considering the expectations set by the first aromas. Actually this is a wine I’d happily drink again – I’m not sure I’d buy a lot more at the price of many Grand Crus, but this wine was always something of a bargain…!
Rebuy – Yes
