Tasting Notes

An intensely earthy nose of a wide range of red berry aromas is surrounded by an abundance of menthol and wood scents. The muscular and sizably-scaled flavors possess a rounded and relatively supple mid-palate that contrasts considerably with the robust, serious, rustic and exceptionally firm finish. I like the depth as well as the persistence of this youthfully austere finish that makes clear that this too is going to require extended cellaring.

Score: 92/94Allen Meadows, (70), April 2018

The 2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru was not impacted by the frost as the vines lie toward the bottom of the slope. It has a relatively extravagant bouquet among the grand crus from Jadot, hints of menthol infusing the red berry fruit. I wonder if that will remain once the wine is bottled? The palate is medium-bodied with juicy, ripe tannin, a fine bead of acidity, quite grippy in the mouth but the finish is not quite as finessed as the aromatics would like. Give this four or five years in bottle. Drink Date 2022 - 2045

Score: 91/93Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (234), December 2017

The Clos Vougeot is another 2016 built for the long haul, its nose of creamy red-black fruit, incense and dark spice introducing a full-bodied, firm wine with impressive depth and concentration, but in need of fifteen years in the cellar to soften and civilize.

Score: 93William Kelley,, January 2018

Cask sample. Lightish cherry red. Lifted, peppery raspberry freshness. Smoothest of textures here, rounded and gentle. More approachable than the Corton-Pougets but with a little less concentration on the mid palate.
Drink 2022-2030
