Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Gentle fragrance of pure lightly spiced red and black fruit. Tannins and oak take their place on the palate but neither is strident or overbearing. Paper-fine tannins. Gently persistent and harmonious. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93Good medium red. Very pure, deep, bright aromas of dark berries, black cherry and licorice. Sweet, sappy and seamless, offering a wonderfully pliant texture for young Clos Vougeot from a structured vintage. Primary dark fruit flavors are accented by herbs and licorice. The very long, mounting finish features firm but well-integrated tannins. Give this one at least five or six years in the cellar.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2013
Burghound | Rating: 94Here too there is mild reduction that does not completely hide the subtle aromas of red berry fruit, crushed herbs, earth and a hint of the sauvage that continues onto the intense, robust and powerful flavors that are underpinned by relatively fine tannins on the moderately austere, linear and persistent finish of impeccable balance. This is packed with upside potential though note that ample cellar time will be required.Author: Allen Meadows
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
