WS 97
Wine Spectator
Rose, cherry and spice aromas introduce this light-bodied, saturated version. The flavors add wild strawberry, incense and kirsch notes, while remaining persistent on the aleidoscopic finish. Feels tense now, yet should develop nicely over time. A mineral element lingers. Best from 2023 through 2045.
BH 94
Burghound.com
An intensely earthy nose of a wide range of red berry aromas is surrounded by an abundance of menthol and wood scents. The muscular and sizably-scaled flavors possess a rounded and relatively supple mid-palate that contrasts considerably with the robust, serious, rustic and exceptionally firm finish. I like the depth as well as the persistence of this youthfully austere finish that makes clear that this too is going to require extended cellaring.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru was not impacted by the frost as the vines lie toward the bottom of the slope. It has a relatively extravagant bouquet among the grand crus from Jadot, hints of menthol infusing the red berry fruit. I wonder if that will remain once the wine is bottled? The palate is medium-bodied with juicy, ripe tannin, a fine bead of acidity, quite grippy in the mouth but the finish is not quite as finessed as the aromatics would like. Give this four or five years in bottle.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

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.
