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


92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes just from the highest plot within the ancient stone-walled vineyard, as the lower plot was pulled up. It has quite a powerful bouquet with black cherries, bergamot, fresh fig and raspberry preserve aromas all well defined. The palate is very well balanced with sensual ripe tannin, good acidity, a little oak to be assimilated on the finish but otherwise a classy Clos Vougeot that will rank alongside those from more chichi, bijou names." - Neal Martin (Dec 2017)

91-94 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:

"A very ripe nose stops just short of being surmature and jammy speaks of poached plum, cassis and earth. There is outstanding richness to the concentrated and plush broad-shouldered flavors that deliver excellent length on the sappy finish that flirts with austerity. Patience advised." - (Apr 2018)
