- Tasting Notes
A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off admirably pure aromas of various dark berries, pungent earth, floral and soft spice nuances. There is good power and volume but as with several wines in the range in 2012 the supporting tannins are notably fine and almost invisible at present as the abundant dry extract coats the palate and pushes the sense of structure to the background on the gorgeously long finish. This isn’t exactly robust but it is very firmly structured which together with the excellent power and punch make this is a seriously good effort.

The 2012 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is the largest cru, from 1.37-hectares of vines located in the upper mid-slope of the clos. It has a gorgeous bouquet with dark berry fruit, touches of dried violet petals and minerals that open in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannins, plenty of finesse and superb tension on the citrus-tinged finish. Great length. Excellent.
