There is enough reduction to render the nose impossible to assess today. Otherwise there is excellent richness and concentration to the full-bodied and succulent flavors that once again brim with dry extract while delivering excellent length on the balanced and less youthfully austere finish than usual. 2015 seemed to favor Clos de Vougeot and this is another excellent example that, much like the Griotte, just needs to add some depth to merit the top end of my projected range. (92-94)/2032+
Healthy dark red. Ripe aromas of black cherry, licorice, mocha and espresso. Highly concentrated but backward, conveying terrific intensity to its flavors of black cherry, wild herbs and salty minerality. As youthfully imploded as this wine is, it can't hide its thickness of texture. Jadot's vines in the lower part of the Clos along the Route Nationale benefited from the sweetness and roundness of the 2015 vintage, noted Barnier, but this wine does not convey a high-pH or late-picked impression (it was harvested on September 10). Finishes tactile, ripely tannic and long. Stuffed with fruit but does it have ultimate class?
The 2015 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has an expressive nose with red cherry, cranberry and strawberry fruit, a feminine bouquet with neatly integrated new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth with a slightly pinched, compact finish that should broaden out once it has completed its élevage. This is a respectable grand cru, even if I would not hold it up as one of Jadot's top-tier 2015s. These tasting notes belong under the umbrella of "Louis Jadot", though it should be pointed out that these bottlings are under "Domaine Louis Jadot", that is to say that the company owns the vines rather than through contracts with growers. See also "Maison Louis Jadot", "Domaine Gagey" and "Domaine des Héritiers Jadot".
Crunchy red fruits on the vivid, lively nose, which is surprising given that it comes from the heavier soils lower down. Fresh, piquant attack, not that weighty or dense. It has a crunchy character with a light chewiness to the texture. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030
