Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Gru begins with 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.

Match it with a Woodcock, simply pot-roasted accompanied by a few of the best mushrooms.

Critical Acclaim

"Moderate wood influence frames the ripe and fresh nose that combines crushed red berries, earth, dried rose petal and subtle kirsch and spice hints. There is good power, size and weight to the medium weight plus flavors where once again the underlying tannins are relatively fine grained, all wrapped in a mouth coating, balanced and cool finish that delivers excellent persistence where the wood resurfaces. Note that this will also require 12 to 15 years of cellar time to arrive at its full potential.

Range: 92-94 Points"

"Good dark red. Classy aromas of strawberry, raspberry, smoke and herbs, lifted by a floral topnote. Juicy, precise and light on its feet, offering an impression of dusty extract to its lightly saline flavors of strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, minerals, flowers, smoke and earth. Finishes minerally, perfumed and long, with noteworthy subtlety and solid tannic support. Boisset established this domain in 1999 and it has been certified organic since 2007."
93 Points

"Black and sleek with the dark-roast coffee scent of expensive oak, this wine’s graceful fruit and incipient complexity is overtaken up front by that smokiness. But it’s the strawberry essence that lasts in the finish, warm and powerful, ready to go the distance in the cellar."
92 Points
