Fragrant, boasting rose, wild strawberry, sandalwood and olive aromas and flavors, matched to a delicate frame. Persistent, showing staying power on the lingering finish.The kings of France always served Beaune wines at their tables, taken from their own cellars. They were broad-minded, as there are Clos du Roi (King's Enclosure) as far afield as Chenôve and Aloxe-Corton. These prestigious enclosures generally came from land confiscated from the Dukes of Burgundy when the province was reunited with France after the death of Charles the Reckless.
The Clos du Roi at Beaune is often mentioned in royal decrees and edicts. For example, the decree of June 21st, 1723 which ordered "the sale and adjudication of the Clos du Roi in Beaune as a covenant and with a perpetual redemption option". This monopole (single owner) vineyard was cultivated and vinified by the people of Beaune, who delivered casks and baskets of bottles to Court at Versailles.
