There is excellent volume and richness to the opulently-textured middle weight plus flavors that possess good verve on the relatively detailed and beautifully long finish that displays a hint of youthful austerity. This is also very firmly structured and while it's not quite as complex as the Clos de la Roche I very much like the impeccable balance.
Slightly dull medium red. The nose offers compelling complexity, with black raspberry and redcurrant aromas complemented by dried flowers, licorice, smoky oak and sweet earth. Plush, broad and seamless, displaying liqueur-like ripeness but also sound acidity to frame its red fruit flavors. Savory herb and earth notes add interest. Finishes sweet and long, with substantial broad, dusty tannins and an element of deep smoky minerality that gave the wine increasing appeal with extended aeration. (ST)
The 2014 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru comes from the bottom, middle and top of the vineyard, one barrel each then blended together. The bouquet is poised and delineated with wet limestone scents infusing the red berry fruit, brisk and vivid. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red cherry and strawberry fruit, tensile and structured with a lovely saline thread that lends this Clos Vougeot animation and tension. This is a very fine Clos Vougeot brimming with nascent energy. (NM)
