About

95

The aromas are of very subtle gun metal, dark berries, and flowers. Full-bodied, dense, and silky with a minerally undertone and hints of salt. Long and beautiful. Crunchy acidity. Drink in 2021. Clos de Vougeot from Faiveley excels in hot and dry years like this.

92-95 Allen Meadows - Burghound

Earthy red berry fruit aromas trimmed in a discreet touch of wood spice are laced with earth, forest floor, and violet hints. The full-bodied and tautly muscled broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent power and detail on the stunningly long, mildly rustic, and youthfully austere finish. This is quite serious and clearly very structured yet it stops short of being overtly old-school in style. That said, this will not be an early drinker.

92-94 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

Bright red with ruby tones. Pungent aromas of black cherry, crushed strawberry, licorice, and flowers complicated by a hint of menthol minerality. A dense fruit bomb on the palate, with its strawberry and cherry flavors given lift and grip on the back end by substantial dusty tannins, which are not yet as well integrated as those of the Echezeaux. Not at all a high-pH style of Clos Vougeot in spite of its lingering salty character.

Product Description:

Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot sits on the lower slope within the village of Vosne-Romanee directly below the Grand Crus of Le Musigny and Grands Echezeaux. One of the largest of the Grand Crus, the 123+ acres are heavily fragmented. Domaine Faiveley owns 3.18 acres spread across multiple parcels. Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration, the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months.
