2017 Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Previously $180)

SKU #1462883 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is completely de-stemmed and matures in 80% new oak. It has an expressive and aromatic bouquet with pretty blueberry, raspberry and iodine aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very effervescent from the start with vivid red and black fruit infused with orange zest and light fig notes. Very fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Firm reduction overshadows the fruit at present. More positively, there is excellent energy and density to the powerful and muscular broad-shouldered flavors that possess a healthy level of the same on the austere, rustic and bitter cherry-inflected finish that is a bit clipped. Like the Bonnes Mares, this is somewhat awkward and while it may harmonize, I'm less certain that this will come together though to be clear, I would not expect it to be a poor wine either. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

93-96 points, Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "80% new wood, but entirely destemmed, as Nicolas wants to keep the massive aspect that makes Clos Vougeot a real vin de garde. Dense black colour. Thick texture for the vintage with firm grained tannins behind, nothing ugly but the weight and authority are there. Dark fruit returns nicely at the back. Very good. Tasted: December 2018."
