Clos de Vougeot, Château De La Tour 2019

Tasting Notes

Initially there is enough reduction to notice though several minutes of aggressive swirling eventually coaxes notably floral aromas of various red berries, warm earth, spice and a hint of exotic tea, all surrounded by subtle but perceptible wood. The dense, powerful and muscular flavors possess excellent intensity before culminating in a dusty, sappy and youthfully austere finish. The supporting tannins are dense but reasonably fine and this should easily reward 15+ years of cellaring though be approachable after 7 to 10 years.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (85), January 2022

The 2019 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with aromas of sweet berries, raw cocoa, loamy soil and incense. Medium to full-bodied, deep and elegantly muscular, it has lively acids, powdery tannins and a classically balanced, youthfully reserved profile. It's a touch finer-boned and more vibrant than its 2018 counterpart at the same stage.
