Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
95 WS / 94 VM / 91-94 BH
An elegant red, with wild cherry, strawberry and boysenberry flavors that border on exotic. Solid tannins offer support and grip, while the fruit elements linger, joined by toasty oak, sandalwood and iron notes. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2023 through 2043. 173 cases imported. - BS, Wine Spectator
The 2016 Clos de Vougeot is an exquisite wine. A burst of sweet red berry and floral notes make a strong opening statement. Delicate and lithe on the palate, the 2016 is such a sensual Burgundy. Clean mineral notes lend vibrancy throughout. I would prefer to cellar the 2016 for at least a few years to let the bright acids mellow a touch, but opening a bottle now is far from a crime.
