“The third vintage of Clos Vougeot from the Michelot family is a legend in the making. Like the Vaucrains, there was still just a touch of CO2 remaining in the wine from its fairly recently-completed malo, but the majestic quality of this wine was very easy to read. The great nose shows of superb depth and purity in its mix of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, a marvelously complex base of soil tones, cocoa and a hint of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and bottomless to the core, with wonderful sappiness aligned to striking transparency. The finish is very, very long, perfectly focused and balanced and defined by finegrained tannins and superb grip. This is one of the very best Clos Vougeots produced today and is a must addition to any well-stocked Burgundy cellar. 2022-2060+. 95-96 points.”- John Gilman
