91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
An unusually expressive nose for a young Clos de Vougeot features attractive red berry fruits, earth, smoke and hints of game that continue onto the rich, full, sweet and utterly delicious medium weight flavors that possess real volume as well as excellent depth and length. This is a lovely wine that displays only a touch of the classic youthful austerity typical of this wine in its youth. Very solid juice and this will age as the balance is impeccable.(4/2007)
91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From new, centrally-located holdings, the de Montille 2005 Clos Vougeot offers a smoky, pungent, sweetly-fruited aroma, a rich, dense palate featuring lightly-cooked black cherry and raspberry, and an overtly ripe, meaty finish that evinces a touch of heat. This has the structure, formidable concentration and rich ripeness to suggest 6-8 years cellaring, but will it develop some nuance along the way? (DS) (7/2007)
The most famous piece of Vougeot is the Clos de Vougeot. This vineyard is the largest of the Grands Crus, over 125 acres, with more than 80 different owners. Originally, the wine of the Clos was assembled from different portions of the vineyard to make a masterful blend, which justified its Grand Cru status. Today, a grower who owns a plot right next to the road, in the clay-heavy soil there, has as much right to call his wine 'Grand Cru' as one from the upper 'Musigny' section, adjacent to Les Musigny, with wonderful stony soil, or that adjacent to Echezeaux.
