The 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots is one of the highlights of the portfolio this year, wafting from the glass with a deep bouquet of cassis, plums, dark chocolate and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with terrific depth at the core, largely concealed tannins, succulent acids and a long finish.—William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

The 2018 Beaune Clos des Aigrots 1er Cru is matured in 15% new oak. It has a very delineated, focused bouquet of mineral-rich red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, gentle grip, superb mineralité and real weight and depth on the very long, persistent finish. This is beautifully balanced. Superb. –Neal Martin, Vinous Media

Note: in 2013 the name was changed from Les Aigrots to Clos des Aigrots; there are only 4 owners that have the right to use the designation Clos here
Tasting note: A more floral-infused nose freely offers up its aromas of very fresh white-fleshed fruit, citrus zest and a touch of mineral reduction. The sleek, intense and even stonier middle weight flavors are actually not quite as concentrated though they are a bit finer on the clean, dry and relatively tightly wound finish. This balanced and attractive effort should reward up to a decade of cellaring. Outstanding. Drink 2026+ –Allen Meadows, Burghound
