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

96 Points - Decanter:
"On account of the heat of the vintage and the lignification of the stems, Arnaud Mortet used 50% whole clusters on this superb expression of the Grand Cru, from 52-year-old vines just below the Chateau de la Tour. Framed by 70% new wood, it's a fine, textured, aromatic Pinot Noir with nothing whatsoever out of place, gliding across the palate with a serene wave. The Clos de Vougeot lives up to its appellation with wines like this. Drinking Window 2028 - 2038" - Tim Atkin (19 Oct 2018)

94-96 Points - Vinous:
"The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, which includes 30% whole bunch, has a well-defined, sous-bois and pressed iris bouquet that blossoms with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a seamless texture and an elegant, wonderfully poised finish. Stunning. " - Neal Martin (Jan 2020)

92-94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is also showing very well, and Mortet speculates that drier, warmer vintages are ameliorating the lower part of this large appellation - where his vines are located. Exhibiting a rich bouquet of plums and wild berries mingled with blood orange, peonies and burning embers, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, with good depth at the core but not the slightest structural asperity." - William Kelley (9th Jan 2020)

91-94 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"Noticeable wood fights a bit with the very earthy mix of upper and lower register aromas that include red currant, raspberry, violet, plum and a whiff of the sauvage. The mid-palate of the larger-scaled flavors is supple and not especially dense though the austere finale tightens up substantially. Like the Lavaut St. Jacques, this needs to add depth over time as it's somewhat one-dimensional today." - (Jan 10, 2020)
