Aromas of smoke, leather and hints of asphalt and dark berries, following through to a full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows well balanced tannin tension. Tasted before bottling. Drink after 2021.
Well-marked by toasty oak, this red's black cherry and plum flavors are buried today, but should shine through in time. Broad-shouldered and dense, with dusty tannins. (BS, Web Only-2020)
A mildly toasty and markedly floral nose speaks of spiced plum, lavender, violet and red cherry. The solidly concentrated and generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors brim with sappy dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm tannins on the powerful and grippy finish that exudes a hint of bitter chocolate. Patience is once again strongly advised.
Tasted from bottle, the 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Domaine Louis Jadot) opens in the glass with an attractive bouquet of berry fruit, plums, orange rind and coniferous forest floor, framed by a deft application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and enveloping, its succulent core of fruit framed by melting tannins. From barrel, I faulted this wine for being excessively open-knit, but while it certainly is unusually supple and giving by the standards of this cuvée, there's more depth than I perceived last year: what's more, and critically, this is simply immensely pleasurable to drink.

The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru was showing some reduction on the nose when tasted from barrel, making it difficult to read. The masculine palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin and quite firm in the mouth. I would be seeking more finesse and nuance, especially toward the sinewy finish, once this is in bottle. (NM)
