Clos Du Roi is a small, 13 hectare vineyard situated to the north of Beaune, and is without doubt one of the best parcels in Beaune. Owned by the dukes of Burgundy and highly favoured by the kings of France, the wines of Beaune were regularly served at Versailles. In the 15th century, upon the death of Charles Le Téméraire, the last duke of Burgundy, this parcel of vines (or "clos
") passed into the hands of the royal winemakers and therefore became Beaune Clos Du Roi - the plot of the king. With a perfect south-south-easterly exposure, at Domaine Tollot-Beaut the vines are worked traditionally by hand.
