2015 Chateau de la Tour Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1292320 94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Penetrating aromas and flavors of black cherry and minerals. Wonderfully creamy and deep but with a compelling juiciness to leaven its velvety sweetness. Utterly mouthcoating thickness here as well as outstanding spicy depth and impeccable balance. Finishes with powerful tannins and great persistence. And bone-dry in spite of its strong impression of sucrosité. This will age for a long time. Labet described this wine as 'like drinking through a funnel: we feel the pressure but it's coming through a small hole.' (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2017)

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is aromatically similar to the regular cuvée but there is notably more concentration, power and dry extract to the broad-shouldered flavors that pushes the very firm tannic spine to the background on the hugely long, palate coating and driving finish. This opulently full-on effort is a manifestly old school Clos de Vougeot that is not only very much built-to-age but is going to require lots of it. In a word, excellent. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This racy red is subtle in aroma, revealing vanilla, cherry, kirsch, currant, graphite and spice flavors. Remains elegant despite the dusty tannins, with a bittersweet chocolate note on the long finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2019)
