(from a ~.34 ha parcel in Grand Maupertuis). A beautifully fresh nose flashes plenty of floral elements on the liqueur-like aromas of dark berries and earth that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent volume and mid-palate concentration to the powerful medium-bodied flavors where the supporting tannins are actually quite fine and particularly so for Clos de Vougeot, all wrapped in an impressively persistent finish where hints of warmth and austerity appear. Patience absolutely required. 94/2030+
100% vendange entier; the Boillots work these vines in Grand Maupertuis themselves): Saturated deep red. Aromas of black cherry, licorice and rose petal communicate striking fruity lift for young Clos Vougeot. Very rich, sappy and deep, but but with no sign of overripeness and markedly different in style from the Côte de Beaune samples that preceded it in my tasting, partly due to its whole-cluster treatment. This distinctly fine-grained Clos Vougeot has clearly benefited from the weather conditions of 2015.
