Ratings and Tasting Notes:
WA=94 From two parcels—one in Grand Maupertui and another in Les Chioures (next to Méo Camuzet's)—the 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru opens in the glass with notes of cherries, raspberries and spices, complemented by hints of liquorice, rose petals and rich soil tones. Full-bodied, layered and velvety, with fine depth at the core, lively acids and fine-grained tannins, it's a rather suave, elegant rendition of Mongeard-Mugneret's Clos Vougeot.
AM=91-93 A spicy liqueur-like nose reflects earthy notes of mostly blue and black pinot fruit that are trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. The delicious middle weight flavours possess a rich, velvety and rounded mouthfeel before concluding in a markedly firm and mildly austere finish where a hint of warmth slowly emerges. This suave and mouth-coating effort should be approachable on the younger side but have no trouble rewarding up to two decades of cellaring. Note: from a .63 ha holding in Grand Maupertui and Les Chioure.
