Tasting Notes

A brooding and almost completely inexpressive nose reveals the barest glimpses of dark berry fruit and discreet notes of moderately toasty wood. The unusually round and very supple flavors possess good mid-palate concentration as well as fine size, weight and power before terminating in a velvety, delicious and only slightly austere finish that is mildly rustic. This is deceptively approachable because while the mouth feel is indeed inhabitually pliant, the finish tightens up quickly and this will require long-term cellaring to be at its absolute peak.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (54), April 2014

The 2012 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru has a feminine, elegant and pure bouquet with Vosne-like pretentions: well defined and equipped with ebullient red fruit. The palate is very well balanced with a succulent and fleshy opening; the tannins making their present felt towards the second half. My one criticism is that at the moment it is missing a little depth and persistency on the sharp and slightly angular finish.

Neal Martin, RobertParker.com (210), December 2013

The 2012 Clos Vougeot is one of the most impressive of the Grand Crus I tasted at Jadot this year. Powerful, rich and layered, the 2012 has more than enough fruit to balance the tannins. Dark red fruit, scorched earth, chalk and iron are all layered into the supple, racy finish. This is a surprisingly finessed Clos Vougeot. Hints of rose petal and mint add lift on the close. There is so much to admire here.
