Burghound, April 2018,
A somber and highly reserved nose only reluctantly offers up notes of plum, violet and freshly turned earth. There is exceptionally good richness to the big-bodied and muscular flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract that serves to buffer the markedly firm tannins on the powerful, youthfully austere and hugely long finish. This is quite simply terrific but note well that it would be pointless to buy this without the intention to allow it at least 10 years of cellar time.

Bright ruby-red. Alluring floral nose combines blackberry, black raspberry, violet and licorice. A savory and rather refined young Clos Vougeot, offering subtle notes of dark berries, flowers and earth rather than this grand cru's more typical black cherry and herb qualities. Nothing rustic about this highly promising Clos Vougeot!
