The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru was reduced by one-third due to the frost, unorthodox in that it affected the higher part of Etienne's vines. It has a slightly more rustic, almost obdurate nose than the previous two vintages, with touches of dried blood and something almost ferrous sutured into the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin and moderate weight, although the finish seems to pull on the brakes a little too early and I found the final third missing substance and depth. Not bad, but there are much better wines than this within Grivot's portfolio this year.
