The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from contracted vines that yields just one or two barrels that Caroline Parent hopes to increase in the future when the Gros family exchange parcels with Bernard Gros’ current holding. It has a very perfumed, very floral bouquet that is actually reminiscent of Bonnes-Mares. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry, black currant pastilles and cassis. It is well-defined and full of joie-de-vivre.
Lovely purity of fruit, lots and lots of tannin. Hints of fragrance emerging, but it?s a chewy and compact mouthful at the moment.?
