Description

Two different plots within this famous Grand Cru site, located mid-slope on the southern side of the vineyard. At the center of the slope, the soil is shallow, a depth of about 45 cm. (17 inches) with a greater proportion of clay than is found higher up on the slope, overlying broken limestone. These very old vines, 80 years in age, are situated in the midst of the prestigious Clos de la Bourgogne that was built by the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Cîteaux and dates back to 1098.

“Healthy dark red. Quite tight and youthfully unforthcoming on the nose, hinting at black cherry and licorice. Then juicy and imploded in the mouth, but showing atypical energy for young Clos Vougeot, with its dark fruit flavors sharpened by violet and stony minerality. Finishes firmly tannic, precise and very long, with a subtle coffee nuance. Should make a worthy follow-up to the superb 2015.”  (1/2018) Stephen Tanzer
