2013 Patrice Rion Vougeot 1er cru les Cras


Like I said, every parcel is quite unique…..from one of the 4 Vougeot 1er crus; yes, there is a town of Vougeot, with the vast majority of its vineyards being the Clos de Vougeot. and then there are four 1ers just north of the walls of the Clos, just below le Musigny. They do tend to be baby Clos de Vougeot like, in solid mineral core, mildly austere structured finish, and sense of depth of flavor. I didn’t get to taste this one, but it looks like Meadows found it en forme.

“An exceptionally pretty and once again ultra-fresh nose of primarily red pinot fruit is trimmed in notes of wood spice, earth and floral hints. There is ample minerality adding lift and a sense of refinement to the solidly intense and voluminous flavors that terminate in an ever-so-mildly austere finish where the supporting tannins are relatively fine. This should age well yet also be approachable on the younger side. (89-92)/2020+”
