Harvested at 13.7% natural potential alcohol, the 2003 Clos Vougeot (250 cases from 1.25 hectares – 3.09 acres) finished its alcoholic fermentation in new oak barrels. Its intense aromatics are reminiscent of blackberries, black cherries, spices, and chocolate. A bold, medium to full-bodied wine, it is powerful, velvety-textured, dense, and exceptionally long. Some alcoholic warmth, detectable in its hugely impressive finish, prevented a more exalted review. Projected maturity: 2009-2020. (PR)
Deep red-ruby. Very ripe, somewhat wild black cherry aroma. Full, fleshy and sweet, with surprisingly juicy dark cherry flavor and no sign of cooked fruit (the pH here is 3.54). This is really impressively dense, concentrated and structured. Finishes with big, horizontal tannins and a chocolatey ripeness.
This is less obviously ripe with red plum and violet aromas serving as a backdrop to intensely earthy and gamy nuances coupled with exuberant full-bodied flavors that possess ample punch and power plus a long and sweet finish. While this is no model of finesse, it is a good deal less austere and more forward than one typically finds in young Clos de Vougeot.
