Régis makes two reds and two whites from adjoining vineyards in Marsannay, the Clos du Roy higher up on the slope and the Longeroies down below on the gentle saddle between the slope and the valley floor. Clos du Roy always seems to have a bit more meat on its bones, a little more depth and richness, in both the red and the white versions. It is more masculine in style, while Longeroies (which means “alongside the king”) is more supple and elegant. I find the Clos du Roy blanc to be quite versatile at my house in Meursault, especially with fowl, pork, and veal.
In case you were wondering, the Clos du Roy (the king’s clos or vineyard) supplied the Ducs de Bourgogne in Dijon with their house pour back in the 14th century.
