Etymology: Roy is the ancient French spelling of Roi, meaning king.

This Clos in Chenôve was originally called “Le Clos des Ducs”, as it was a possession of the Dukes of Burgundy. The vineyard was renamed Clos du Roy in 1477, after the defeat at Nancy of the Duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold, and the subsequent annexation to the Kingdom of France of his lands.

Source: Syndicat d’Appellation Marsannay.

Site: Clos du Roy is located in Chenôve. It is the northernmost lieu-dit in the Marsannay appellation. The vineyard sits at 270-meters elevation. The slope is moderate. It faces slightly south of east.

Geology: The upper portion of Clos du Roy sits on a large deposit of the light, gravelly, and calcium-rich grèzes litée. This deposit sits on top of a bedrock of White Oolite limestone at the top of the slope, and red sandy marl towards the bottom. The lowest portion of the slope consists of ancient alluvium from the old Ouche riverbed.

Soil: The depth of soil is variable throughout the vineyard. The soil of Clos du Roy is poor, but very rich in iron and gravelly.

Robert Parker92/100

Opening with aromas of plums, wild strawberries and blood orange mingling with lifted top notes of rose petals, peonies and warm spices, the 2017 Marsannay Clos du Roy is a medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered wine that's supple and textural, its enveloping core of fruit underpinned by rich but ripe tannins and succulent acids. William Kelley
