An intense, vibrant red, offering an immediate impact of ripe, fresh cherry, strawberry, rose, spice and mineral flavors. Fruity, open and seamless, this almost seems a bit too simple, yet continues to build in intensity to an long, pure and saturated aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2038.
(from domaine-owned fruit in two similarly sized parcels -- one at the top and the other at the bottom of the slope). The wood treatment presently dominates the notes of ripe cherry, blueberry and warm earth. There is excellent richness to the big-bodied and powerful flavors that are blessed with plenty of dry extract that buffers the otherwise very firm tannins on the long, highly complex and youthfully austere finish. This is a sizeable but not forbidding CV though note well that ample patience will be required if you wish to drink it at its peak. Drink: 2032+
The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from 0.5-hectare of vine in two parcels at the top and bottom of the vineyard that are vinified together. It has a beautifully composed bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit with rose petals and bergamot tea emerging with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with veins of candied orange peel on the opening, the new oak (40%) needing some time to be subsumed, but lending good weight on the confit-like finish. Give it 3-4 years in bottle and it should evolve into a fine Clos Vougeot. (NM)
(from parcels at the bottom and top of the Clos, vinified together and aged in 45% new oak): Healthy dark red. Subtle dark fruits, licorice and coffee on the expressive nose. At once silky and vinous, with an impression of almost peppery acidity enlivening the wine's black fruit flavors. Not a weighty or high-pH style of Clos Vougeot. In fact, its serious tannic spine makes it harder to taste today than the Echézeaux and suggests that patience will be required. (ST)
