Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-94

Jadot's delicately spicy 2002 Clos Vougeot is medium to full-bodied, structured and loaded with red cherries, licorice, and earth. This fresh, peppery wine is concentrated, deep, and has terrific mouth-feel as well as a long, suave finish.

($90) Bright red-ruby. Fresh but reticent aromas of black raspberry, licorice and minerals. Concentrated, dense and chewy but quite restrained and backward, with little early sweetness. This has a tight kernel of fruit and subtle hints of peat, minerals and earth. A Clos Vougeot with terrific backbone, and a long, aromatic, slowly mounting finish that really saturates the palate.

Burghound | Rating: 90-92

Very ripe and incredibly earthy aromas lead to perhaps the densest flavors of any wine tasted today. The flavors are also extremely ripe with notes of chocolate, coffee and obvious torrefaction yet like many extremely ripe '02s, the buffering acidity keeps things fresh if not altogether typical. This is extremely concentrated, almost thick and while there is obvious rusticity and a touch of youthful austerity along with stunning length. To be sure, this is no model of elegance but it's impressive in its fashion with big but completely buried tannins.

Deep, bright crimson. Aromatic and obviously dense and concentrated. Very very full with cherry fruit concentration. Serious obviously but just slightly lacking factor X. Needs time. Tannins still grating. (cask sample)

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.
