About This Wine:

Situated at 240 metres in altitude, on the lower part of the estate, the brown soil dating back to the tertiary era is deep and marly with lots of clay and refined silt.

Dense and earthy, it unveils morello cherry and fresh cherry aromas that persist with a long finish. With time, its strength grows and becomes even more chiselled and silky. This is a great age worthy wine.

Ratings & Reviews

91-94 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Like the 5 Terroirs, the subtly oaked nose is brooding if highly complex with its range of red pinot, dark berries, forest floor and tea-like nuances. There is excellent richness and mid-palate concentration to the powerful and mouth coating big-bodied flavors that deliver fine length on the balanced finish that is less austere than usual." - (Jan 15, 2016)

91-92 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
"(80% new oak; Mortet always picks this fruit early owing to its typical combination of millerandé and large grapes):Healthy deep red-ruby color. Oaky, very ripe aromas of redcurrant, smoke and spices lifted by a touch of violet. Sweet, ripe and fine-grained; a distinctly elegant style of Clos-Vougeot without any hardness. Still, with its strong component of spicy oak, I doubt I could identify the terroir. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins." - Stephen Tanzer (December 2015)

90-92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is matured in 80% new oak. It has a crisp, stony, introverted bouquet despite rigorous coaxing. The palate is broody at first but there is commendable concentration here. The tannin feel a little thicker than other crus in 2014, quite dense in the mouth, although I would have liked a little more delineation right on the finish. Let's see how it performs once in bottle." - Neal Martin (Dec 2015)
