Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

Dark red-ruby. Closed nose hints at black cherry, licorice and herbs; suggestion of crystallized fruit. Intensely flavored and vibrant but stubbornly backward on the palate; offers cool flavors of cherry and cassis leaf. Very young and quite persistent on the back end. May ultimately merit an even higher score.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88-91

Dark-ruby-colored, the Clos Vougeot displays Asian spices and oak-imbued aromas and a highly-extracted, deeply concentrated, full-bodied, tannic, chewy flavor profile packed with layers of dark fruits. Drink it between 2002-2010. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy in Washington, D.C. in April. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided.

(decanted one hour before) Good color showing some maturity; nose has begun to open since last tasted showing lovely, mainly black, with herbs, mint and spice; rich & fat; lots of backbone; very good tannins, softening but still a bit hard; masculine; lots of concentration; full, rich & complex; very good fruit; not quite the concentration & depth for great but certainly fine; long, balanced finish; ready but will drink well and possibly develop further over the next decade.

Tightly wound-tannic. Delicious fruit starting to show.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
