This legendary wine has great power, depth and a fragrant, floral bouquet.
Serve with roasted or sauced red meat, pheasant, venison or other large game and medium-strength cheeses such as Camembert.
"Good medium red. Expressive aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol; reduced today but very Clos Vougeot. Dense and vibrant, with very good underlying spine to its black fruit flavors. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and excellent length. A serious Clos Vougeot in the making.
International Wine Cellar
"The 2011 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a fragrant, well-defined bouquet with pure fresh strawberry, Morello cherry and citrus aromas. The palate is well-balanced with a fine grip, good weight, more comes across more masculine than the nose suggests, but with a firm confident finish. Good aging potential here. Drink 2015-2030.
The Wine Advocate
" A very toasty nose evidences a hint of tar on the mentholated nose both red and dark berry fruit and pungent earth aromas. There is good volume to the unusually supple, suave and smooth middle weight flavors that possess an opulent mouth feel as there is a plenitude of palate coating dry extract. There is a touch of warmth on the moderately austere, notably firm, robust and powerful finish that isn't especially refined but it is impressively persistent. Score: 89-92
