From an upper slope vineyard 150 meters from the Chateau de Vougeot, this is classic, nobly austere and mineral Clos Vougeot, ready to run the long haul. A classic example that is flat out terrific.
“(from a superbly situated 1 ha parcel high on the hill). A pungent nose is composed of reductive aromas and oak toast. There is excellent intensity to the big-bodied flavors that are underpinned by phenolically mature tannins and an abundance of dry extract that serves not only to buffer the firm structure but also to impart a velvety mouth feel to the serious, long and moderately austere finish. Patience will definitely be required. (92-94)/2027+”
