Clos de Vougeot, Domaine Hudelot-Noellat 2014
Discreet wisps of wood surround the earthy, plum, dark currant, spice and sauvage scents. The medium-bodied flavors are quite muscular though the supporting tannic spine is finer than usual on the lingering, firm and youthfully austere finish that exhibits a touch of dryness. This classically styled effort may very well round out but that is not guaranteed.
|Score: 92||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (5), January 2017|
Good deep red with ruby highlights. Restrained aromas of licorice, violet and minerals. Conveys a youthfully medicinal quality and an impression of power to its brooding black cherry, dark chocolate and menthol flavors but this grand cru is less filled in today than the Malconsorts. Finishes with substantial tannins and salinity. This will need extended cellaring.
