Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
92-95 VM / 93-96 BH
Bright ruby-red. Medicinal yet very ripe aromas of black cherry, blackberry and licorice. Tightly wound and very black in fruit character, boasting terrific intensity and inner-mouth tautness. This dry, classic Clos Vougeot possesses superb energy but is extremely primary and imploded today--even a bit tough. The very long finish features pronounced salty minerality and a powerful spine for aging. One of Saouma's two barrels comes from the bottom of the Clos, which he says is now bringing more finesse to this wine. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous Media
Tasting note: A notably ripe yet attractively fresh nose is made up of spice, earth, plum liqueur and a hint of smoked meat. The wonderfully sleek, concentrated and muscular flavors possess unusually good refinement in the context of what is typical for the appellation while delivering breathtakingly good persistence on the well-balanced finish. 2015 was a great vintage for Clos de Vougeot and this example will only add to its renown. Bravo! Burghound – Don’t Miss!
