Clos de Vougeot 2018 Jean Grivot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru displays attractive aromas of licorice and cassis that mingle with nuances of rose petal and incense, framed by a judicious touch of new wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and layered, with a broad-shouldered chassis of fine-grained tannins and the elegance and suppleness typical of the vintage, concluding with a sapid finish.
Lightish crimson. Red fruits, roses and a light hint of vanilla. One of those wines you want to go on smelling for ever. Tighter on the palate but still succulent. Tannic finesse. Great combination of subtlety and persistence. Red fruits and almost something close to citrus. (JH)
