Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 92

The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a pastille-like bouquet with red cherries, kirsch and orange sorbet aromas, pretty if just missing a little complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, good substance and grip, fanning out gently towards the mineral-driven finish with a dash of spice on the aftertaste. This Clos de Vougeot improves with aeration and ends up being rather lovely. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. [Neal Martin, 22/10/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2045

Robert Parker – 93-95

“The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru felt just a little disjointed compared to its peers at first and will hopefully gain more cohesion during the remainder of its élevage. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, raspberry preserve and cranberry tinged with white pepper, long in the mouth with a structured finish that bodes well for the future. Wait for the aromatics to get their act together, and you will have a very fine Clos de Vougeot that I suspect will rank alongside their 2015, if not surpass it.” [Neal Martin, 29/12/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2038 – 16.5

Cask sample. 16 months in oak, of which 40% new. 10% whole cluster. Two parcels, one closer to the road, but they do not blend the parcels. Lower part often sold. Darker than most wines in this Drouhin line-up and with oak sweetness mixed in with the dark-red fruit. Floral – violets? – and richly generous in fruit. Rounded though firmly structured. Tougher than some. (JH) [09/11/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030
