RATINGS

93Stephen Tanzer

...precise scents of blackberry, dark cherry, violet and crushed-rock minerality Densely packed and sharply delineated; silky if not exactly fleshy and in need of time in bottle to blossom Wonderfully pure flavors of dark berries, flowers, licorice and bitter chocolate Finishes with suave, broad tannins and terrific mounting juicy persistence

...very toasty though the expressive nose of earthy red berry fruit and sauvage scents is much less spicy. The round and surprisingly supple middle weight flavors are supported by slightly riper tannins...very mild edge to the slightly austere finish...

17.5Jancis Robinson

Intense, expressive, concentrated nose. Dark purple. Rich and juicy. Very exciting and well integrated. Savoury and lively...

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, 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.
