CLOS DE VOUGEOT Grand Cru
Clos de Vougeot grand cru wines are harmonious, round, generous, fleshy, ample, mellow, racy and elegant, with a deep rich ruby red colour. The bouquet is of quite exceptional aromatic intensity in which the concentrated perfumes of rich red and black fruits (cherries, mulberries, blackcurrants), vanilla and spices, woodland undergrowth, violets and, with age, animal pelts, all mingle and combine.
In the mouth this ample, meaty, muscular wine achieves perfect balance between fine tannins, mellowness, and a discreet acidity; the complex aromas linger a long time in the mouth.
