1996 thomas-moillard corton clos du roi


1996 Domaine Thomas-Moillard, Corton Clos du Roi
This was a virile, impressive, painfully young wine when first purchased – but it was always a thrilling ride. Today it’s as virile and acid-pointed as it ever was, it also seems to have a thicker, more viscous texture and concentration too. The problem with this wine, though, is that what was once painful but fun, is today mainly just painful. There’s more than a little flavour development, but there’s no engagement today. I don’t hold out a lot of hope for the remaining three, or-so, bottles, but it’s not a bad conversation piece! It is what it is…
Rebuy – No
