(from a 1.37 ha parcel of 60+ year old vines situated close to the Château; vinified with 33% whole clusters) This is also quite aromatically restrained with its compact and dense mélange of freshly turned earth, humus, spice and plum-scented nose. There is excellent ripeness displayed by the bold, concentrated and robust broad-shouldered flavors that really vibrate on the complex and equally long finish. I very much like the delivery as this is the epitome of power without weight but it's more refined than most examples of Clos de Vougeot though note well that refined does not mean less ageworthy as this too will need plenty of cellaring to arrive at its peak.
Good dark red Cool, youthfully inexpressive nose dominated by black cherry and smoky minerality; the strictest of these 2014s today (Mallard described it as Cistercian) Densely packed and very rich but classically dry, with savory minerality currently holding the upper hand over the wine's fruit This extremely backward wine is also showing its new oak element (85%) in the early going, with the firmly tannic finish displaying a note of caramel along with a strong impression of saline dry extract. 94+ points.
