Vinous – 91
The 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru has a rather muted, reduced nose that needs coaxing before it begins to blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, and finely tuned thanks to its keen line of acidity. The oak here is well integrated, and there is ample persistence on the finish, though this is missing some complexity and nuance at the moment. It’s just in a sulky period and will repay cellaring. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2043
Robert Parker – 93
The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru unfurls in the glass with an attractive bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, incense, dark chocolate and cedary new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and pure with a comparatively open-knit profile for Meo’s Clos Vougeot, though there is plenty of fine-grained structuring tannin held in reserve, concluding with a nicely focused but youthfully firm finish.

Lightish cherry red. The fruit is ripe and sweet but still pure and fresh, the oak well hidden. Not especially generous in fruit but there’s harmony between the fruit and the fine-grained tannins. (JH)
