Tasting Notes

Initially there is a whiff of reduction present though it quickly blows off to reveal ripe if brooding and wonderfully complex aromas of black cherry fruit and warm earth undertones. The rich, full and powerful broad-shouldered flavors also possess outstanding concentration where the dry extract completely saturates the palate on the long and dusty finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This is really quite refined as once again the relatively fine-grained tannins contribute significantly toward the sleek mouthfeel. Once again, like its stable mate, this should be capable of aging for a very long time.

As it usually is, this is ripe, serious and wonderfully complex with black cherry fruit and warm earth undertones leading to rich, full and powerful broad-shouldered flavors that also possess outstanding concentration that completely saturates the palate on the long and dusty finish. This is really quite refined as once again the relatively fine-grained tannins contribute significantly toward the sleek mouth feel. While in 2015 I marginally prefer the Grands Ech, this too is really quite impressive.

The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a perfumed bouquet with dark cherry fruit, blackcurrant and briary tinged with fine mineralité - hints of cold stone percolating through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, good depth of fruit and crucially a keen line of acidity that maintains the tension. There is a subtle spicy, almost white pepper element to this Clos Vougeot that becomes more accentuated as it gently fans out on the finish. This is a very impressive Clos de Vougeot.

Score: 93/95Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (228), December 2016

(production here was 25 hectoliters per hectare): Healthy bright, dark red. Knockout nose offers scents of kirsch and maraschino cherry, minerals, spices and white pepper. Tactile, chewy wine with an outstanding combination of sweetness, mineral verve and definition. Really bulletproof fruit here. Finishes very long and penetrating, with incredible energy and lift to its anise and spicecake flavors. These 2015s are wonderfully fresh and transparent to terroir.
