A very ripe nose features notes of plum, cassis, humus, forest floor and violet. The velvet-textured, concentrated and very serious big-bodied flavors possess seemingly endless reserves of sappy dry extract which helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the mocha-infused finish. This beautifully complex effort is less austere than it usually is at this point though the structure makes it pointedly clear that this is going to age for a very long time. *Don't Miss!* (4/2017)

Extremely floral and offering up slate, blue fruit and lemon rind. Medium-to full-bodied, firm, direct and structured with firm and racy tannins. Pretty length. (4/2017)

The 2015 Clos de Vougeot from Maison Drouhin is another outstanding wine. The family’s parcel of vines lies next to those of Domaine Méo-Camuzet, just below the château. The bouquet is pure, reserved and very deep, offering up a constellation of black plums, black cherries, venison, bonfires, a complex base of soil, a youthful touch of stems and nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with a powerful personality this year, a fine chassis of ripe tannins and a very long, classic and nascently complex finish. Just add bottle age! (11/2016)

The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is superb, offering up an utterly classic nose of plum, cassis, currant leaf, blood orange, incense and a beautifully integrated framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and expansive, with a deep core of vibrant fruit and an ample chassis of beautifully fine-grained tannins which assert their Clos Vougeot muscularity by displaying a bit of grip on the long, lingering finish. While this is rendered with typical Drouhin elegance don't let that deceive you: this is a wine for the long haul, and its potential for sustained positive evolution in the cellar is considerable.

The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a more meaty and savory nose than its peers, but there is a bit of sweatiness, suggesting it is not as clean or pure as it might have been. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, and here the wine improves, since there is much more detail than on the nose. This Clos de Vougeot is well balanced, with a judicious spicy character enveloping the finish and great sustain on the aftertaste. If the nose improves with bottle age, then this will turn into a very fine Clos de Vougeot. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (NM) 92+ (11/2018)
