Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, December 2017

Benjamin bought this tiny plot in a deal over some Clos de Vougeot in 2011. What he thought was just a spare part has turned out to be one of his favourite village cuvées, and he says the most consistent performer in his cellar. It was thanks to another stroke of luck that the UK allocation all comes to Goedhuis, after one of Benjamin’s assistants accidentally showed this secret cuvée to David a few years ago. We haven’t let it out of our sights since. The 2016 has a fleshy core of enchanting red fruit and the supple flow of mellifluous tannins.

Unlike the other predominant Côte de Nuits appellations, Vougeot's main appellation is its onlygrand cru vineyard, Clos de Vougeot. It is by far the largest grand cru of the area totalling over 50 hectares with over 40 owners rumoured to own vines. As a result, its vineyards run from the flat, clay-dominated valley floor to the well-drained, venerated sloped hillsides suggesting that its quality ending on where it is grown. As a result, it is often the least valued of the grand crus and can offer excellent value, particularly in good vintages where ripeness has been attained.
