“There are three and a half barrels of this glorious Clos Vougeot in the Michelot cellars in its inaugural vintage. The vines were planted in 1972 and are now at their prime at forty years of age. The deep and beautifully sappy nose soars from the glass in a blend of red and black cherries, blood orange, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, gamebirds, a beautiful base of soil and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with a suave profile, beautiful transparency, a great core, tangy acids and outstanding length and grip on the complex and stunning finish. This is only the first vintage for the Michelot Clos Vougeot, but it is pretty hard not to assume that this is going to be one of the reference point examples of this lovely grand cru terroir for many, many years to come. The 2010 Michelot Clos Vougeot is a brilliant wine. (Drink between 2022-2075) 96 points ” John Gilman
