This classic crimson Clos de Vougeot is muscular, dense, and slightly sauvage, but itís touched with sweetness on the palate and in the nose, making it the gentlest giant in the land. Very concentrated raspberry and blueberry fruit are laid atop an earthy foundation with plenty of sous du bois and spice. Chewy tannins grip the tongue as this wine lasts with an attenuated finish. Crafted from very old vine fruit and drinking for the next couple of decades.
Producer
A family that is united and whose talents complement each other The Estate is currently run by Philippe and Christine Drouhin, assisted by their children Caroline and Nicolas. Each successive generation continued to develop the Estate with the sole objective of investing in hillside vineyards, which was a visionary and risky choice. At the time, those vineyards were already very expensive and not very productive. The bet paid off and today, thanks to the sacrifices and risk-taking of the previous generations, the 11.50 hectare Estate is one of the most prestigious in terms of diversity, quality and the surface area of its appellations.
