RATINGS

96-99The Wine Advocate

Monstrous amounts of spices imbued with blackberries are found in its powerful aromatics. Full-bodied, it reveals a massive breadth, a liqueur of syrupy cassis and blackberries that linger seemingly forever in the mouth.

96Wine Spectator

Bright and pure, this evokes cherry and floral notes on an elegantly wrought frame. Though sleek, there's a firm base of tannins and bright acidity underneath, so this should develop well. A powerful finish.

92Stephen Tanzer

Sweet aromas of dark cherry and licorice. Juicy, spicy and intense, with palate-saturating flavors of briary berries, minerals, spices and earth. Dense, rising finish throws off notes of berries, spices and earth.

88-91Burghound.com

Reserved, backward and tight earthy pinot fruit aromas and textured, punchy and relatively powerful flavors supported by velvety tannins and a delicious, complex finish that is persistent but not overly precise.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Vougeot, Clos de Vougeot

Clos de Vougeot is a walled vineyard that dominates the tiny commune of Vougeot in Burgundy’s Nuits-St.-Georges. The 124-acre Grand Cru vineyard includes a historic chateau that in 1945 was purchased by the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, an organization devoted to promoting the traditions of Burgundy and its wines. The impressive chateau is the organization’s headquarters. Clos de Vougeot was established as a vineyard by Cistercian monks in the 12th century, then sold off to private owners after the French Revolution. The vineyard is unusual for a Grand Cru in that it includes land that runs down to the main road. The soil is light limestone with sand. Principal landowners are Chateau de la Tour, with 13 acres; Meo-Camuzet, 7.5 acres; Rebourseau, 5.5 acres; Louis Jadot, 5.3 acres; and Leroy, 5 acres.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
