(50+ year old vines). A discreet, even reticent nose of earthy and very fresh dark berry fruit evinces a subtle sauvage character that continues onto the big and sleekly muscled flavors that are concentrated and mouth coating, all wrapped in a the classically austere young Clos de Vougeot finish that delivers excellent length. This is a serious effort that is balanced and should age extremely well though it will require ample patience. 92/2016+
