Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    Benjamin bought this tiny plot in a deal over some Clos de Vougeot in 2011. Originally an afterthought, this has turned out to be one of his favourite village cuvées and 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 cuvée to us a few years ago! This is so perfumed and full of finesse, hardly surprising given its proximity to Chambolle. An absolute beauty, graceful and fine.

    Score: 88-90

    Here too there is a mentholated top note to the very pretty essence of red berries and airy floral nuances, especially violet. I like the mid-palate texture of the mouth coating medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a dusty, austere and slightly grippy finish. This should gradually round out, but it will probably always have a bit of tannic grip to it. Drink 2026+

    Score: 90-93

    Attractive bright mid purple. The nose is quite discreet but the wine on the palate is its usual exceptionally attractive self. There is a quality of pinot in this vineyard which translates into real harmony.

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.
