2016 Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1583896 92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An overtly floral nose enjoys added breadth in the form of earthy black cherry and currant aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Like the Bonnes Mares and Chapelle, the medium weight plus flavors are seductive while displaying excellent intensity on the driving finish that flashes the hallmark austerity of a young Clos de Vougeot. This promising effort will require at least some restraint. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru includes 35% whole bunch fruit (the first time ever) and was cropped at just 25 hectoliters per hectare because of frost damage. It has an attractive bouquet with copious dark cherry, blackberry and crushed flowers. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, quite a masculine Clos Vougeot with a good backbone on the somewhat foursquare finish that just cuts away a little swiftly. This might be one cuvée where I prefer the 2015 to this year's counterpart. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark blueish crimson. Rather alluring ripe, sumptuous fruit. But then the oak makes its presence felt. Shame because the fruit is really exciting. Maybe it will all come right in the end? 16.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2018)
