Description

Clos du Roi is a Premier Cru vineyard at the northern end of the Beaune appellation in Burgundy. It is associated with red wines made from the Pinot Noir grape variety. These wines, while not as famous as the Grand Cru-level wines from the Corton hill a little way to the north, are generally relatively full bodied with rich, earthy characters.

As a thin-skinned grape variety, Pinot Noir generally has a moderate to high acidity, a low level of phenolic compounds, low to moderate levels of soft tannins and is generally paler in color than most other red wines.

Red wines range from a pale pinkish red through to the darker tones which an interior designer might recognize as Burgundy. Color and body do not necessarily intensify as price and/or quality rises, and even the deepest examples tend to have an appealing translucence and minimal opacity in the wine's core. See below for rosé.
