94+ The Wine Advocate

Unwinding in the glass with rich aromas of cassis, cherries, grilled meats, warm spices and dark chocolate, the 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is full-bodied, powerful and muscular, with a tightly wound and indeed youthfully primary core of fruit that's underpinned by a firm chassis of powdery structuring tannin and lively acids. It's a deep and complete wine, but it will require considerable patience.

91-93Vinous / IWC

...perfumed bouquet of incense and rose petal scents filtering through the brambly red fruit. The medium-bodied palate offers firm, grippy tannins...little saline in style, with a powerful, almost burly finish...


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.


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.
