Tasting Notes

Dark red with ruby tones. Deeper but initially more subdued on the nose than the Vieilles Vignes but the wine's chocolatey ripeness takes on compelling floral lift and lively thyme and sage notes with time in the glass. A wonderfully silky, creamy Clos Vougeot with outstanding inner-mouth lift to its dark fruit and mineral flavors complicated by wild herbs and spices. This hugely dense wine finishes with massive but noble late-arriving tannins and explosive building length. Very few grand cru Burgundies manage such a combination of velvety texture and energy.
