2021 Jean Pierre Guyon Clos de Vougeot Grand cru

2021 Jean Pierre Guyon Clos de Vougeot Grand cru


From a wonderfully placed morsel in the Dix Jouneaux and Montiottes Basses portions of the Clos, neighboring De Montille and Prieuré Roch and just a stone’s throw from the Mugneret Gibourg sisters, this proves to be the real deal in the implosive/explosive, spherically expansive Grand cru magic of the Clos de Vougeot at its best, with its solid core of minerality driving the dazzling show. Just as in 2016, this is easily among the top to two Clos de Vougeots (along with Arnoux-Lachaux) that I tasted among my nearly forty visits this year, clearly surpassing the Mugneret Gibourg and Hudelot Noellat examples, as its sense of balance, finesse, and intensity is pure class in a glass….Yes, it is that good. A little * awarded here. Yet another another holy shitballz moment.

“From an old-vine parcel just below the Château, next to Jean-Nicolas Méo’s holdings, the 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with a classy bouquet of warm spices, rose petals, incense, raspberries, cassis and orange rind. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, dense and concentrated, with a deep core, rich structuring tannins and a long, lingering finish. This is a powerful Clos Vougeot that transcends the vintage.” 93-95 William Kelley

“Rich dense purple black, clearly a huge mouthful here, much darker fruit, a little bit of oak. There is such a layer of joyous puppy fat over and above the structure, then the minerals. This is ripe but certainly not too much. Those minerals at the back are so important. Tasted: November 2018.” 94-96 Jasper Morris

And yes, it is the highest scoring Clos de Vougeot of the vintage for Jasper Morris, above Mugneret Gibourg, Ch de la Tour, Meo Camuzet, Hudelot Noellat etc……I was in fits of disbelief and jaw dropped awe here, but I was with almost the entire range, so……get what you can justify, and thank me later….a little * awarded here.

“A rich dark purple. The nose is astonishing because of its definition. It is a slightly darker and certainly less lushly appealing style. Peppery notes are in balance but the volume of fruit surmounts. This is a fine and very noble example which could well leap ahead of the 2020 in the rankings. There is such a wealth of fruit, on the cusp of red and black, which returns in the very long finish. Bravo. Drink from 2030-2040. Tasted: November 2022.” 95-98 Jasper Morris “Five Star Wine”
