Notes from the Winemaker:

In 1110, the Cistercian monks were donated land in the village of Vougeot which they very quickly planted with vines and kept until the Revolution. Today, the prestigious "clos" of almost 50 hectares belongs to about 80 owners. The soils at Clos Vougeot have quite different characteristics, from gravel and chalk at the top of the plateau producing a velvety wine, to brown, marly, clayey soil at the bottom giving stronger wines.

Ratings & Reviews

:


95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An intense, vibrant red, offering an immediate impact of ripe, fresh cherry, strawberry, rose, spice and mineral flavors. Fruity, open and seamless, this almost seems a bit too simple, yet continues to build in intensity to an long, pure and saturated aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2038. 50 cases imported." - BS (Nov 30, 2017)

92-94 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"The wood treatment presently dominates the notes of ripe cherry, blueberry and warm earth. There is excellent richness to the big-bodied and powerful flavors that are blessed with plenty of dry extract that buffers the otherwise very firm tannins on the long, highly complex and youthfully austere finish. This is a sizeable but not forbidding CV though note well that ample patience will be required if you wish to drink it at its peak." - (Apr 15, 2017)

91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from 0.5-hectare of vine in two parcels at the top and bottom of the vineyard that are vinified together. It has a beautifully composed bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit with rose petals and bergamot tea emerging with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with veins of candied orange peel on the opening, the new oak (40%) needing some time to be subsumed, but lending good weight on the confit-like finish. Give it 3-4 years in bottle and it should evolve into a fine Clos Vougeot." - Neal Martin (30th Dec 2016)

92+ Points - Vinous:
"Full medium red. Youthfully medicinal scents of dark berries and licorice show subtle floral lift. Juicy and penetrating but fairly supple too, showing a sexy sweetness and complicating savory minerality to its strawberry, dark raspberry, spice, violet and licorice flavors. No easy sweetness here but not austere either. The wine's sneaky concentration augurs well for future development in bottle. Finishes fresh, savory and persistent, with harmonious ripe tannins and no shortage of acidity." - Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2018)
