Tasting Notes


Tasted at the Domaine Engel tasting in London, the 2002 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is still a fabulous wine, consummate 2002 red Burgundy. It has a fragrant and floral bouquet with wilted rose petals and just a hint of peony, all with tip-top focus and almost disarming precision. This is a case of less is more. The palate is medium-bodied and very complex with notes of sour cherry, cranberry and underlying minerals. Like before, there is a wondrous sense of symmetry that makes this Clos de Vougeot effortless, while the finish lingers and never wants to leave. Nor do you want it to. Tasted October 2016.


Dense and backward now, this exhibits red cherry, black currant, mineral and spice aromas and flavors. It's very tightly wound, yet all the elements--bright acidity, firm, ripe tannins and concentrated fruit--are in the right proportions. Don't touch this for five years. Best from 2009 through 2030.
