This too is notably ripe but even more restrained with its layered array of earthy dark berry fruit aromas and subtle spice notes. There is terrific concentration to the muscular and surprisingly sleek full-bodied flavors that are delicious and also possess excellent mid-palate density that drenches the palate in sappy dry extract that also completely buffers the robust tannic spine on the explosive, rustic and hugely long finish. This is an imposingly powerful effort that is also going to need a very long snooze in a cool cellar. Textbook Clos de Vougeot.
A gorgeous nose, a cocktail of red and black fruits showing both clarity and opulence. Rich, suave, full-bodied palate with rather grippy tannins that need time to integrate. Has Vougeot typicity, so has a certain rusticity, but there's sufficient fruit to overcome it in time. Long, chewy finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2038. (SB)
