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.
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.
