Overflowing with pure raspberry and cherry flavors; this has a very ripe texture, lots of velvety tannins and a long, beautiful finish. Tastes like a barrel sample and needs time to come around; try after 1997.
The regular cuvee of Clos de Vougeot possesses a saturated deep ruby color. The nose offers lavishly rich, sweet aromas of black fruits and new oak. In the mouth, the wine enjoys exceptional concentration, a dense, expansive, opulent palate, plenty of glycerin, and a heady, lusty, intensely concentrated finish. While approachable now, it should evolve gracefully for up to a decade. Proprietor Francois Labet has taken this perennial underachiever to the top of Burgundy's quality hierarchy. In addition to bottling his wines unfined and unfiltered, Labet is beginning to organize his viticulture management so that his superbly placed parcel of Clos Vougeot can be farmed in an organic manner. His 1990s are the finest wines this estate has ever produced. (RP)
Relatively elegant and complex nose for an Accad-inspired wine with lighter than expected flavors though there is definitely good richness and depth plus good length. By no means a great wine but given how poorly some of the Accad wines from this era have aged, this is frankly a pleasant surprise.
