Tasting Notes

A reserved and borderline grumpy nose only grudgingly reveals its aromas of notably ripe dark berries, warm earth and discreet wood nuances. There is excellent richness and concentration to the full-bodied and succulent flavors that brim with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the balanced and less youthfully austere finish than usual. With those accolades duly noted, this isn't especially complex today but the underlying material is sufficiently promising that my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that more depth will almost certainly develop over time.

Score: 94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (70), April 2018

There is enough reduction to render the nose impossible to assess today. Otherwise there is excellent richness and concentration to the full-bodied and succulent flavors that once again brim with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the balanced and less youthfully austere finish than usual. 2015 seemed to favor Clos de Vougeot and this is another excellent example that, much like the Griotte, just needs to add some depth to merit the top end of my projected range.

Score: 92/94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (66), April 2017

The 2015 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has an expressive nose with red cherry, cranberry and strawberry fruit, a feminine bouquet with neatly integrated new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth with a slightly pinched, compact finish that should broaden out once it has completed its élevage. This is a respectable grand cru, even if I would not hold it up as one of Jadot's top-tier 2015s.
