Winemaker's Notes

Really attractive ruby color of medium intensity with real brilliance. Truly charming, slightly vanilla at first, then moving towards aromas of fresh raspberries of great purity, then notes of musk and soft spices. The mouth is sumptuous, possessing an extraordinary velvetiness. The palate is rich in aromas - red fruits, then cinnamon, then butterscotch - almost creme brulee. Almost infinite length.

Critical Acclaim

"Relatively heavy reduction blocks an assessment of the nose but the rich, round and relatively supple large-scaled flavors are quite generous yet retain a good sense of underlying detail and tension on the ever-so-slightly rustic finish that evidences the typical youthful austerity of a classic Clos de Vougeot. Range 90-93."
93 Points

"A beefy, solid red, whose aromas of autumn leaves and spice, along with game-tinged berry flavors, show some development. This is firm and fresh, with edgy tannins, but approachable now, so don't wait too long. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2013 through 2022. 279 cases made."
