RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Shows fine purity, with bright red cherry, blackberry and mineral notes, all backed by a vibrant structure. Muscular tannins emerge on the finish, suggesting another few years of aging.

92The Wine Advocate

...expansive, lush, decidedly sweet palate, yet one that preserves a fresh, juicy component and a transparency to stony mineral notes and spicy nuances...

90-93Burghound.com

...supple, round, fresh and detailed middle weight flavors that culminate in a linear and highly persistent finish that is perhaps less austere than it usually is. A Clos de Vougeot of finesse rather than power and muscle.

89-92Stephen Tanzer

Shy but complex nose hints at berries, mocha, menthol and roasted nuts. Silky and suave in the mouth, with nicely integrated acidity and rather fine-grained, building tannins giving grip to this rather subtle wine.

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.
