Tasting Notes

The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru had been racked two weeks previous to my visit. It has quite a precocious bouquet with vivacious red cherry, kirsch, orange sorbet and mineral notes - the aromas almost bursting from the glass! The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, touches of brown spice sprinkled from start to finish, with tangible tension that makes this so endearing. It lingers long in the mouth, concluding what is a very well-crafted Clos de Vougeot. Pierre Vincent opined that it might be the best Clos de Vougeot that he has ever made at Domaine de la Vougeraie. Me thinks you're right. William Kelley - Wine Advocate
