Clos Saint Denis, Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot 2019

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru, matured with 25% whole bunch and 50% new oak, is cohesive and nuanced on the nose, offering gorgeous black fruit, briar, undergrowth and crushed stone aromas with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins, a fine bead of acidity and superb salinity on the finish. This was the last Clos Saint-Denis that I encountered in five weeks of tasting in Burgundy, and – blow me down! – it might be one of the best. 2025-2055

3 barrels of which two are new. The nose is richer and fuller than Clos de la Roche but again showing some whole bunch character. The floral aspect would be peonies rather than roses. The vintage maybe shows a little more here. Huge density behind, with some of the nutty feel, but the fruit is spread dangerously thickly on the toast. Tasted: November 2020
