    Goedhuis, December 2015

    Sitting to the north of the Clos de Vougeot, this small clos makes a wine of complexity and intrigue. Masses of mocha, plum and autumnal fruits, with a central tannic core. Whilst not as powerful as its Grand Cru neighbour it still shows the high class of its terroir.

    The 2014 Vougeot Clos du Villages has a pretty, quite feminine bouquet that opens with aeration -- redcurrant and cranberry fruit emerging with time. The palate is juicy and ripe, good density with a slightly meaty finish. Benjamin used to keep this for himself, but fortunately it is now being commercialized. This is certainly worth checking out as it seems to be brimming with freshness and character, that bitter cherry note keeping you on your twinkle toes. Drink 2017-2029

    Sprightly berry nose, with a touch of vanilla. Juicy and succulent on the palate but has vigour too, plus ample acidity and zest. A pretty wine but not fragile, showing youthful charm but has some energy too. Balanced and long. Drink now - 2022. Stephen Brook. Selected for Burgundy Best Value 2014

    This is velvet and juicy and ripples; It has some smooth muscle and richness in the mid palate.

Region

Vougeot

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.
