Critic Notes

The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is superb, offering up an utterly classic nose of plum, cassis, currant leaf, blood orange, incense and a beautifully integrated framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and expansive, with a deep core of vibrant fruit and an ample chassis of beautifully fine-grained tannins which assert their Clos Vougeot muscularity by displaying a bit of grip on the long, lingering finish. While this is rendered with typical Drouhin elegance don't let that deceive you: this is a wine for the long haul, and its potential for sustained positive evolution in the cellar is considerable.
