Clos de Vougeot, Domaine François Lamarche 2015
**Note: from 3 different parcels, one at the bottom and two at the top but on opposite sides**
A more deeply pitched and much earthier and gamier array mixes notes of various red berries, floral and enough wood influence to mention. Like the Les Cras the broad-shouldered flavors possess a sleekly muscular mouth feel while delivering excellent length on the firm, serious and youthfully austere finale. I would suggest allowing this at least 7 to 8 years of cellaring first.

he 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from three parcels within its famous walls. It has a slightly stricter and linear bouquet compared to the 2015 Echézeaux, revealing subtle darker fruit aromas as it opens up in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, impressive depth and balance with pitch-perfect acidity. This is so harmonious and smooth in texture, yet there is superb complexity and nuance on the finish. This is a delicious Clos de Vougeot that will repay several years of cellaring. Drink Date 2020 - 2040
