TASTING NOTES

"A ripe but agreeably fresh nose offers up pretty and layered notes of red and dark currant, earth and humus scents. There is a lovely sense of energy and detail to the tautly muscular big-bodied flavors that deliver both better depth and length on the youthfully austere and markedly serious finish. Patience." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 65

"(from the upper part of the Clos): Healthy dark red with ruby tones. Brooding aromas of black cherry, violet and crushed rock. In a powerful, firmly structured style; almost medicinal compared to Fourrier's estate wines. Highly concentrated but I'm not sure I would identify this distinctly austere wine blind as coming from Fourrier. Finishes very long, with a serious tannic spine. A wine like this is almost sure to close down in the bottle." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru was the only cru to display just a little reduction on the nose, slightly occluding the black fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannin. I just find this Clos Vougeot rather brawny and missing the grace of the Echézeaux on the finish." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #228

"Very dark and a relatively hot site. Something quite animal on the nose. A hint of blue cheese. Grainy tannins on the end. Very complex." JancisRobinson.com
