Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Le Grand Maupertui is showing very well from bottle, opening in the glass with intense aromas of wild blueberry, cassis, spicy soil tones, licorice and violet. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and layered, with excellent depth and dimension at the core, displaying more concentration and fine-grained structure than the 2017 rendition and concluding with a pure, mineral finish.
BH 93
Burghound.com
A brooding and grumpy reluctant nose reveals its aromas of humus and earth-suffused dark berry fruit. The mouthfeel of the medium weight flavors is relatively refined though they're not particularly concentrated, at least not compared to the Ech or Riche. They do however possess good power and focus plus this is sufficiently structured to make clear that this is going to require time.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
V 93
Vinous
(some of the vines here are up to 100 years of age, vs. 27 for the Echézeaux): Good dark red. More brooding and less relaxed on the nose than the Echézeaux, offering scents of dark raspberry, violet, spices and menthol, plus an ineffable high note of blood orange. A step up from the preceding wines in texture, depth and elegance, with its tactile dark fruit flavors conveying a creamy quality as well as lovely energy. Finishes with substantial dusty, fine-grained tannins and superb rising floral length. Still a bit bound up (Anne Gros noted that this wine typically closes down within the year after bottling) but already wonderfully precise and suave. Gros owns nearly a full hectare in the top part of the Clos, just under Grands-Echézeaux.
D 93
Decanter
This Clos Vougeot is lovely in 2016, with a brooding bouquet of black fruit, candied peel, woodsmoke and roast game bird. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, ample and rich, with succulent balancing acids, a layered core of fruit and fine but firm tannins which assert themselves on the back end.

Anne Gros and Jean Paul Tollot, two winegrowers in Burgundy for over 20 years, have combined their expertise to serve the fine terroirs in Cazelles, in the Minervois !!! Love at first sight ?... Absolutely ! Reflection ?... Of course! They chose Cazelles for the diversity of its soil, made of limestone, clay and sandstone, for the discovery of 4 main cepages (Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault), for the quality and the wide age range of its vines, the privileged environment at the foot of the Black Mountain, its altitude of 220 metres (identical to Vosne- Romanée). A building was created to grow, receive, make and care for these fine terroir wines. It has been designed with great attention to detail, respecting the energies, the wines and the people... A beautiful architectural structure made of simple but noble materials...terracotta, wood, stainless steel... Roundness is eveywhere... the road, the hills, the tanks, the barrels... the wines.

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

Containing the largest Grand Cru in all of the Côte d’Or, Vougeot, the village, takes its name from the small stream flowing through it, called Vouge. Over three quarters of the village retains Grand Cru status, and a single vineyard at that: Clos de Vougeot (or simply, Clos Vougeot). Its mass—over 50 ha—retains the single name chiefly for historic reasons.

But today, Clos de Vougeot contains over 80 owners and shows significant soil and slope variations within its boundaries. The top, bordering Musigny and Grands Echezeaux, is calcareous and gravelly on oolitic limestone and exhibits wonderful drainage. The middle sections are limestone, gravel and clay with less of a slope. The lower part has little slant and is mostly made of clay. Historically the diverse parcels were blended but today the abundance of owners means that everyone has his own style. Exploring and understanding them is part of the allure of Clos de Vougeot.

In general a fine Clos de Vougeot when young will be dense and dark but juicy, with a pronounced austerity, and needs a good ten years to bring it to its full potential.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
