Tasting Notes

An especially ripe nose features a spicy mix of earthy red berry fruit aromas that are trimmed in discreet oak. The earth-suffused, serious and strikingly textured full-bodied flavors possess plenty of sève and a youthfully austere, linear and impressively persistent finish. In sum, this is an outstanding Clos de Vougeot though one that will require ample patience.

Score: 94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (41), January 2011

In contrast to the openness of the prior wines, this is closed and still quite tight and only aggressive swirling liberates a spicy mix of earthy red berry fruit aromas that are very much in keeping with the earth-suffused, serious swirling liberates a spicy mix of earthy red berry fruit aromas that are very much in keeping with the earth-suffused, serious and strikingly textured full-bodied flavors that possess plenty of sève and a moderately austere finish.

Score: 92/95Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (37), January 2010

ood medium red. Subtle, pure, high-pitched aromas of black cherry, blackberry, violet and licorice. Chewy, intense and penetrating, with plenty of stem-driven energy behind the saline, soil-driven flavors of minerals, dark berries and graphite. There's no easy sweetness here, but this builds impressively in the glass and leaves the taste buds quivering on the very long, lightly peppery back end. These firm tannins will need a decade of patience. Like the Grands-Echezeaux, this wine was aged in 80% to 90% new oak.
