Tasting Notes

Tasted blind at fine & rare wines' clos vougeot tasting, the 2013 clos vougeot grand cru from domaine hudelot-noëllat has a more intense bouquet, although not quite the same degree of precision. the fruit feels a little darker with touches of earl grey suffusing the red plum and strawberry fruit. the palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin that seem to soften in the glass. there is certainly good volume and weight in the mouth here, gently building to quite a structured, relatively masculine finish with a dash of black pepper lingering on the aftertaste. this is very fine, but it will repay time in the cellar.

**Note: from two separate parcels, one to the left of the Château and another situated to the right by the Méo-Camuzet vines**
This is also heavily reduced though not lactic. This combines excellent richness with very fine detail that adds to the appeal of the medium weight plus flavors that deliver outstanding length on the moderately austere and beautifully well-balanced finish. While not imposingly structured this will still need all of 12 to 15 years of bottle age to realize its full potential.

Score: 91/94Allen Meadows, (57), January 2015

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru felt rather stemmy on the nose, especially when compared to others in this flight, although it improves with aeration and gains cohesion. A hint of Earl Grey perhaps? The palate is medium-bodied with firm, almost rigid tannin. The acidity is well judged and lends this a sense of natural balance and poise, which particularly comes through on the tensile finish. This is a very fine Clos Vougeot made with a deft hand. Tasted September 2016.
