The 2017 Beaune Clos du Roi 1er Cru has a tightly wound bouquet at first, gradually unfolding to reveal blackberry, raspberry preserve and light rose petal aromas. There is a touch of cold steel here. The palate is medium-bodied and supple, and shows plenty of rondeur on the entry. Juicy and almost nubile, this is a Clos du Roi that will be difficult to resist in its youth.
