2015 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Corton Clos Du Roi Grand Cru
There is a pronounced ripeness to the less elegant and much more sauvage-inflected aromas of cassis, plum liqueur, freshly turned earth and forest floor nuances. The palate impression though is more like that of the Bressandes in that it's muscular yet reasonably refined while evidencing focused power on the well-balanced and gorgeously persistent finish. I very much like the mouth feel thanks to the dense but fine-grained tannins and this should also amply reward extended cellaring.

The 2015 Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru has more finesse than the premier crus from Volnay and Pommard that preceded it during my tasting at the domaine, quite floral with pure dark black cherry and hints of anise developing with aeration. The palate has a gentle grip in the mouth. The tannins feel firm lending this masculinity, although there appears to be sufficient fruit to back it up. There is pleasant saline aftertaste in situ although I would like to see more finesse developing during the remainder of its barrel maturation.
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate #228 (Dec 2016)
Full ruby. Austere nose hints at black fruits, licorice and soil tones, with a violet element emerging with air. Broad and deep but utterly primary and unforthcoming. The dark fruit flavors showed increasing creaminess as the wine opened in the glass, but this very firmly structured wine will need extended aging to absorb its substantial tongue-coating tannins and to reveal its full personality. The longest of these 2015s to this point.
