Joseph Drouhin, Clos de Vougeot 2014 Bottle size: 750mlFrance, Burgundy
'Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, Drouhin's 2014 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is a wine that I might have underestimated from barrel, or perhaps it has just blossomed in bottle. It has a conservative bouquet that needs coaxing from the glass: red cherries, strawberry, scorched earth and just a touch of vanilla from the residual new oak waiting to be subsumed. The palate is medium-bodied with finely tuned tannin and bright red fruit, tensile and poised with a taut, quite linear finish that has class and refinement. This was one of the best in the flight of Clos de Vougeot, and I scored this even higher than Etienne Grivot's. Drink 2019 - 2039.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 94/100
'Here the surprisingly spicy nose consists of deft wood and ripe dark berries along with ample amounts of earth and sauvage hints. The full-bodied and overtly powerful flavors possess excellent size and weight as well as fine mid-palate concentration that help to buffer the very firm tannic spine that shapes the youthfully austere finish. Patience is very definitely required as this should age effortlessly for years. Drink 2029+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 93/100
