Goedhuis, December 2021
The family own 1.2 hectares of Clos de Vougeot positioned in three different spots: two are lower lying, the third in the middle of the Clos. Fortunately, they have a very good supply of ground water, which is so important in a drier year such as 2020. An array of tayberry, mulberry and blueberries, this is gorgeously scented. This wine has the classic power of the Clos and a firm central tannic core, carefully encased by the depth of sweet dark fruits. Very full and great length.

The 2020 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru, comes from three parcels, two at the bottom and one in the middle) has a slightly ripe and more outgoing bouquet than the Echézeaux with wild strawberry, raspberry, touches of brown sugar and kirsch. Surprisingly sweet towards the finish, this almost overdelivers in terms of fruit, though it is just missing a little finesse on the finish. Still, it feels harmonious and minerally and I suspect will age well in bottle. Drink 2025 - 2048

This is also aromatically restrained with its ripe mix of black and red raspberry, plenty of earth and discreet spice and wood wisps. I very much like the texture of the round, rich and markedly powerful big-bodied flavors that deliver outstanding length and solid depth on the compact finale where the only nit is a touch of warmth. Patience advised. Drink: 2035+

A dense purple but not black. Deep dark fruit also on the palate, firm tannins, even a little youthful bitterness, which helps to tame the fact that the alcohol is a little bit higher here. Nothing dried out, this is just a Clos Vougeot on a relatively large scale.
