Clos de Vougeot 2010 Jean Grivot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2010 Clos de Vougeot is another fabulous wine bursting with energy and a sense of urgency that is hard to capture with mere words. Freshly cut roses, crushed rocks and red berries come together beautifully in the glass. The Clos de Vougeot is impeccable and totally engaging from start to finish. The only possible downside is that the seriously firm tannins will require considerable bottle age to soften.
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
A complex, spicy red, boasting an elegant and chewy texture. Cherry, currant, tea, black pepper and earth flavors are matched to dense, muscular tannins. Reticent and tense on the finish, despite the excellent length.
